Volunteering

There are many areas of club life where volunteers are needed to ensure events run smoothly. These range from the regular Race Hut and RIB team volunteers for the Racing Series, Trophy and Open events to additional on-shore volunteers at big events like National Championships and the annual Club Regatta. Please submit a Volunteer Form to let organisers know for which events you are available.

Poole Yacht Club uses DutyMan to manage our volunteering schedule.
