Getting involved Haversham Sailing Club is run by volunteers, therefore the success of the club depends entirely upon the commitment and enthusiasm of its members. We ask all our members to commit up to 4 days a year helping out with important duties. Members may choose from the following roles:
Race Officer – after training given by the club, the race officer organises and runs races.
Race Assistant – helps the Race Officer to run the races. Training is on the job. This is a great way to meet other members and find out more about sailing.
Safety Boat Helm and Safety Boat Crew – these roles are for club members who have powerboat or safety boat qualifications or experience, or are prepared to undertake formal training.
Galley (bar and kitchen) – this involves preparing and serving food at lunchtime on Sundays and occasional Saturdays throughout the year.
There are numerous other opportunities to become involved with the club including helping out at Spring and Autumn work parties, undertaking training to drive the weed boat, becoming an Instructor or joining one of the committee groups which manage different aspects of the club.
