RSS13-volunteersThe Saltspring Island Sailing Club was built on volunteerism. Our tradition of self-reliance depends on the active support of member volunteers who give of their skills, knowledge and time. Members are rewarded for their efforts through well-run racing, cruising, junior, social and educational programs; excellent waterfront and on-shore facilities; affordable moorage; and life-long friendships.

Volunteering Opportunities

Each member is expected to contribute a minimum of 20 volunteer hours every year. Volunteer work is organized through the Club’s Committees. There are many opportunities for Club members to volunteer according to their skills and abilities, whether they contribute physical labour, trade skills, clerical help, organizational skills, professional expertise, consulting services, assistance with hospitality and social events, summer Daily Wharfinger duties, or service on the Board. Every aspect of Club management and maintenance is accomplished through volunteer labour.  Everyone’s contribution is valuable and is very much appreciated.

Have questions or need information? Contact any of the Club Committee chairs (you’ll find lists under both the Volunteers and Contacts links to the left and in the yearbook), or get in touch with our Volunteer Coordinator. If you’re a new member, your Club sponsors can also help familiarize you with volunteering opportunities.  Once you’ve been issued your yellow t-shirt and joined in the fun, you’ll feel like one of the team!
