2022 saw us run one of the largest racing programmes in the UK with 16 major events including multiple national level regattas – plus plenty of other smaller racing activity. We have had lots of positive feedback from every one of these events – particularly regarding the quality of the Race Management. It is evident that we have an excellent reputation for running world class racing events – and this is, if anything, only improving. This is all down to the dedicated, passionate and professional volunteers who give up their time to help out – so thank you to those of you who volunteered.
Over the past few years, we have worked hard to make our racing events enjoyable and rewarding, not only for the sailors, but for the volunteers as well. If you have enjoyed helping out in the past, we would encourage you to sign up for one or more events in 2023. If you haven’t volunteered with us before, please do come along and give it a go – no experience required. For those of you who wish to take the next step, we are making further improvements to our training and mentoring programmes – more details to follow.
2023 is once again shaping up to be a busy racing season. If you would like to volunteer to help out at any of our events, in any capacity, please follow the link below or email the Sailing Office.
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you on the water during 2023.
