Duties

Volunteer duties

All members are expected to undertake two or three duties each year. These will be for race management, safety boat or in the galley.

When you renew your membership at the start of each year you have the opportunity to say what dates you are unavailable. Once duties are allocated you will be sent a notification by email from Dutyman. If you then find that you cannot make your allocated duty you can arrange a swap using Dutyman. It is your responsibility to make sure that the duty is fulfilled.

If you are joining mid-year you may be asked to stand in for a duty.

Any member performing a duty may claim average points for the corresponding races by signing on as OOD on the declaration sheets.

Race management duties

Members who are asked to do a race management duty can find race management instructions at the Race Management Folder 2015. Normally, races will be started from the committee boat, so bring your buoyancy aid, wellington boots and suitable wet weather/cold gear. Please report for duty at least one hour before the start of the first race (see sailing programme for times).

Safety boat duty

As with race management, bring your buoyancy aid, wellington boots and suitable wet weather/cold gear. Please report for duty at least one hour before the start of the first race (see sailing programme for times).
