Wakatere BC 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.
Volunteering is a great way to keep yourself active and at the same time to enjoy the benefits of being a part the sailing fraternity, the Devonport community and the New Zealand culture of enjoying time by the sea.
Our club calendar runs from Sept - Sept and our Club Race Days are most 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.
Wakatere volunteers can be involved in activities afloat or ashore, there is something for everyone from vhf race radio in our clubhouse to taking results on our committee boat. Volunteers are always supported by our Sailing Committee, experienced Race Officers and our Sailing Class Reps.
