The Skiff Racing Association was formed in 1901 to provide a governing body for skiff racing, to ensure that a standard set of rules was applied for racing and boat construction.
The Association is run by a committee elected from the affiliated clubs at an annual meeting. This committee meets several times a year to ensure that any issues regarding the application of rules can be dealt with and other matters relating to the promotion of the sport, the affiliated clubs and regattas can be discussed. A sub-committee deals specifically with the rules of racing and of the Association, and with the recruitment, training, testing and appointment of umpires for skiff racing.
The Association has close ties with the Amateur Rowing Association (ARA), and the rules of racing are based on those of the ARA closely enough that ARA qualified umpires may also umpire skiff races.
