Changes to the Duty system 2019

Published 17:33 on 2 Nov 2018

In order for the Club to run efficiently we need people to volunteer to do duties. These include Safety Boat Duties, Race officers and galley duties but there are many others. At the moment our duties are all done by around 40% of the membership. We need more people to come forward and share in the running of the club. Please make sure that you perform the required number of duties listed below.

We find the position of OOD (Race Officer) is hardest to fill. Training sessions are being organised for next year but you can also now use the position of AOD (Assistant) to train yourself up and get used to the system. Please put yourself forward for this position.

In general we would like the experienced members to be training up the members who are new to sailing and Safety Boat management. If you perform safety boat duties with your regular sailing partner, and you are both capable of driving a RIB, please think about separating yourselves and taking a less experienced member with you as crew. You can always pair up again on the day as long as both boats have competent drivers.

We ask all our members to locate themselves in the following groups and ask them to do the following duties.

Racing members to do 4 duties on the water or in the race office inclusive of Opens.

Racing Cadets (16-18) to do 2 duties on the water or in the race office.

Social members to do 2 duties on the water or in the galley.

Members who have a boat in the park to do 2 duties on the water or in the galley.

Affiliate Members to do 2 duties on the water or in the galley.

Cruising members to do 2 duties on the water or in the galley.

Members who are physically challenged and life members are not obliged to do a duty but may do so.

Members who do not use the club are not obliged to do a duty but may do so.

Thank you for your participation.
