Volunteering


Wakatere values all volunteers - as a family focused club, volunteering to help on one or more race days during each season is an essential part of club membership for our sailors. We also welcome a wider group of supporters (extended family, local community members, seniors) and the contribution by everyone to the club is vital to ensure successful, well organised club events. Without our volunteers we wouldn't have the afternoon racing and regattas that club members enjoy each season.

Our club calendar runs from Sept - Sept and our Club Race Days are Sundays with regular racing in the afternoon. Briefing 12:30pm; Race start 1:30pm. We also host a few key events during the season, often a class National Regatta or Championship - we are a busy active club.

Volunteers at Wakatere will be supported by our Sailing Committee, experienced Race Officers and sailing Class Reps. We provide mentoring and training opportunities for activities afloat or ashore, there is something for everyone.
