Sail West July 15-17 - Gimli Yacht Club "VOLUNTEERS NEEDED”

Gimli , MB


GYC is hosting the Sail West Regatta in July and the organizing committee is looking for volunteers to assist with this event. Sail West is one of Sail Canada's three regional championships. Sail Canada’s Regional Championships provide an opportunity for sailors to train and compete with high-level sailors in their region.

Volunteers will be needed on shore to assist with parking lot direction, food distribution, as well as beach wranglers to help competitors on and off the water. We are also requesting 2 keelboat owners to operate and allow their boat to be used for the 2 Signals Boats on the race courses as well as 2 keelboat owners to take spectators and/or parents on the water.  If you are an owner of a rigid Inflatable or medium size power boat that can seat 3-4 people, we could use your boat and you as a boat driver for the Safety or Judge boats.

For on-water officials, we are looking for people to assist on the RC Signals boat (timers, recorders, flags, sounds), people to work on the Mark Set boats as Mark Layers or Assistant Mark Layers, people to work in a safety role on a Safety Boat.
Some  positions will require Sail Canada training and certification, but anyone with past training or experience is encouraged to get in touch with us. We will also work with new people who have an interest in learning these roles. If you have an interest in taking a Sail Canada approved course to become a certified Mark Layer or Assistant Mark Layer, please contact Sail Manitoba for more information or go to their web page: .
