Volunteering opportunities for up and coming regattas

Friday, 19th July 2019

With one of the biggest summers on record coming our way, comprising of a full boating calendar, 3 World Championships, Sail Sandy and Sail Melbourne. We are calling for volunteer expressions of interest to help us deliver these events.

The first regatta that we will be running will be the annual Sail Sandy! Sail Sandy is SYC’s premier annual OTB regatta which will be held on the 12-13 October. This regatta typically attracts up to 200 boats each year and is shaping up to be much bigger this year with an expected 200+ boats!

The regatta is open to all Monohull and Catamaran Off The Beach boats with a listed YV yardstick. This year we will also see the J24’s joining us for the two days as well as running our normal Green Fleet regatta for sailors in their Minnow, Open Bic, Cadet or Optimist boats! Spread over four course areas, Sail Sandy is extremely resource intensive and consequently, we are calling for anyone who may be able to lend a hand to register your interest through completing the expression of interest survey! Sail Sandy volunteer expression of interest survey!
