Volunteering - get involved


Volunteering is fun and a great opportunity to meet new people, gain new skills and give back to the local community.

As a not-for-profit club we rely on the assistance of volunteers at our major events, club race days and at other times throughout the year.

We appreciate the time and effort that volunteers give to our club and provide FREE training in all areas and help give you valuable life skills such as First-aid, licenses and courses. We also hold an annual "thanks for Volunteering" event and BBQ's each year.

The Club needs volunteers to help deliver Club racing and major events held throughout the year.

To meet like-minded people and join our volunteers please register here.

Upcoming exciting volunteering opportunities include:

  • Club racing each week
  • Sail Sydney 2024
