RMYS relies on the goodwill and expertise of its volunteers to run racing and to help us out around the club. You will have the chance to meet new people, learn new skills and have a lot of fun. If you would like to be involved, we would love to hear from you!
On Wednesdays, we run breakwater starts from the comfort of the RMYS tower, and the course is around fixed marks. On Saturdays and some Sundays, racing is often run from the more exciting race management boats. On these days the course is set up to suit the prevailing wind conditions, and the boats sail further off shore.
You don't need to be an experienced yachtie to be involved. See the Volunteers Guide below for more information, or contact Alicia (RMYS Sailing Coordinator) on 9534 0227 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

On Water Safety Plan
All volunteers should familiarise themselves with the RMYS On-Water Safety Plan. It contains very important information on what to do in an emergency situation while racing is being conducted.
