My name is Kate Ausburn and I’m responsible for the club duty roster. I’m relatively new to the club, although I do look after our Merchandise and am keen to ensure our TVSC race days run smoothly.
As you all know our little club relies heavily on volunteers to keep the wheels in motion so that we can all enjoy a weekend sail together, so I’m hoping this email can spark some interest for members to help. (Family members are also welcome to get involved if interested).
Unfortunately, we have a number of gaps in the duty roster throughout the remainder of the current Summer Championships as follows:
- Sunday 20 Feb – Start Boat Crew, Timekeeper
- Sunday 6 March – Start Boat Crew (Ability to assist in the event of an issue)
- Sunday 20 March – Race Officer
We are hopeful that everyone can offer a little of their time to the club, at least once each racing series, to avoid skippers (and crew) allocated to fill these gaps. Hopefully, we won’t need to take this approach as we prefer to keep operations quite relaxed. Currently, the same names are filling the duty roster so it will be nice to see some new faces participate in these roles so the regulars can have a break.
I would expect the “Duty Officer” and “Race Officer” will fill first in the future as this role enables you to get out on the water sailing after volunteering, so it’s really a case of first in best dressed to snap up these spaces for future racing series.
The current duty roster is available on our racing page.
Please contact me on 0400 016 634 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to fill any current gaps which will be appreciated by all. Training or a briefing on what is required can be arranged on race day if you can arrive by 11:00 am NSW time prior to race briefing and rigging. I’ll see you all out on the water.
