RMYS club volunteers

Volunteers have the chance to meet new people, learn new skills and have a lot of fun.

Time to volunteer

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 offshore.

How to help

There are many duties associated with running an event. Whether you are relatively inexperienced or fully qualified, we would very much like to hear from you. Race Management opportunities exist with our keelboat and Juniors with various roles on a weekly basis which include:

Scribes, Flag operators, Race Officer, Boat Driver, Mark Laying, Race Results
Free Training for Volunteers

We understand that Race Management and other roles require specific skills. We are offering those interested a chance to upskill with free courses*

If you’re interested, please contact us on 9534 0227 or by email at boating@rmys.com.au

On Water Safety

All volunteers should familiarise themselves with the RMYS Sailing Operations Policy. It contains very important information on what to do in an emergency situation while racing is being conducted.
