Call for Volunteers!

Friday, 16th November 2018

In December 2018 and January 2019, SYC will be involved in running a range of regattas and we’re looking for some volunteers who are kindly willing to assist with the running of these. The regattas are as follows:

  • Sail Melbourne International – 13-16 December 2018
  • Australian Sabot Nationals – 28 December 2018 – 4 January 2019
  • SYC Regatta incorporating the S80 State Championships

We have a number of roles that we require to be filled for each of these regattas as follows:

Sail Melbourne International

This year we are partnering with Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron and will be running the Laser course (and windsurfers I believe?!) which will be a great opportunity to familiarise ourselves with the Laser class ahead of a busy summer of sailing in 2020 with several Laser regattas ranging from states, nationals and worlds. We’re looking to fill a few gaps:

  • Finish boat scribe
  • Radio operator (must have VHF licence) which is an onshore role.
  • Launch ramp duties

Sabot Nationals

This new year period, we welcome back the Sabot Nationals to SYC which were last held here in January 2007. We have Glenn Taylor lined up as our Principal Race Officer and with the format of Sabot Week (beginners) in the morning and the Open Fleet in the afternoon, we’re looking to fill roles the following roles:

  • Start boat roles (AM and/or PM)
  • Course boat roles (AM and/or PM)
  • Pin boat (PM)

SYC Regatta incorporating the S80 State Championships

As has been the tradition over the last few years, the SYC Regatta is on again in January 2019! Last year we had the Australian Yachting Championships incorporated into the SYC regatta and this year we have the Victorian S80 State Championships. We’re still finalising all of the details for this weekend but we’re probably looking at a couple of courses, one for the S80’s and one for the AMS/IRC divisions. We’re looking for a number of volunteers for this including:

  • Start boat roles
  • Course boat roles
  • Pin boat roles

If you are interested and available to help out in one or more of these regattas over the December-January period, please don’t hesitate to get in contact on or on 9599 0907 as we’d love to hear from you and it would be great to have you involved!

Thanks you in advance!
