Join Our Volunteers

Published 00:00 on 2 Dec 2019

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 our club membership. We also welcome help from extended family members and the local Devonport community. The contribution by volunteers is vital to ensure the safe, successful and well organised running of 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 - May and our primary club 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, at least one National Regatta or Championship - we are a busy active club.

Volunteers at Wakatere will be supported by experienced race management. There is something for everyone if you are keen to get involved.
