)-- Fairfield Harbour, a residential boating and golf community located 15 minutes from historic New Bern, has announced that resident Bill Jarvis has been named a Regional Race Officer by U.S. Sailing, the nation’s sailing governing body. After having attended several courses, passing the written exam and submitting letters of recommendation, Jarvis was chosen by the Race Management Committee to serve as an officer for the Southeast region, which includes nine states. With this certification, he is able to organize and oversee any sailing event in the region, assuring that each event is properly managed and is safe, fun and fair. Jarvis is only of three North Carolinians designated as a Regional Race Officer by U.S. Sailing.
Jarvis began sailing when he was 8 years old and has been actively involved in the local sailing community after moving to Fairfield Harbour in December 2000. He will help create and enforce the appropriate sailing rules and regulations at several upcoming community events.
