Duty Information

With the exception of members paying an appropriate surcharge as part of their membership fee, all sailing members are expected to help with team duties during their duty weekends.

  • Adult members are expected to help on at least eight occasions during the sailing season.
  • Junior members in school year 10 or over are expected to help on at least four occasions during the sailing season.

It is the individual’s responsibility to find out their expected commitment on duty weekends from the relevant team leader, and to arrange a swap if unable to attend. This can be done by swapping with other members, using the online DutyMan system (see below).

Sailing members who do not fulfil all their duties will be charged the surcharge (see the membership form for the current surcharge amount).

The committee reserves the right to impose penalties or review the membership of any member who fails to attend their duty weekends.

safety-boat-20150508-6618Duties may involve activities such as the following:

  • Safety boat helm/crew
  • Boat launch/recovery help
  • Race officer and assistant

Duties should not be seen as a chore – they can be great fun, help you interact with other members of the club and as they say – many hands make light work.  The volunteering of members makes the club the success it is – so please do come along and help.
