Who is allowed to helm a J-24?

Thread starter #1
I recently purchased a J-24 with a friend of mine, we are both excited to race it. I just became a member of the class association in order to complete the measurement certificate change of ownership. I noticed it says I have "helming privileges" at any class race. Does that mean that my friend also has to become a class member if he wants to helm at a race?

On a related note is ownership required for someone to drive?

Thanks!

I am relatively new to the class so I am not 100% sure but I believe that the skipper does have to. If you register with a skipper and co-skipper things might be different but the skipper must be a class member
