We are organising a series of lead-up regattas before the 2018 Worlds and also hosting the 2019 Etchells Australia National Championship early in 2019 where volunteers can get involved.  All the regattas and dates are below:

  • 2017 October 26-29 – Queensland State Championship

  • 2018 September 8-9 Brisbane Fleet Pre-Worlds Regatta

  • 2018 October 18-27 Etchells World Championships
  • 2019 January 13-18 Etchells Australian National Championship
If you are willing to be involved with any part of the series of races, events and activities we would be delighted to hear from you.  You can complete the form to the left to let us know you are interested and you can include the area you would like to volunteer for and dates you are available.

Volunteering duties include:

  • On the water race management support, safety and marshalling
  • Off the water includes support for the registration process, boat and sail measurement, safety checks plus ongoing support during the regattas
  • Hospitality includes helping with the official social functions including prize givings, welcome cocktails and during the Worlds, the Anniversary Gala Dinner.

Volunteering is great for both experienced sailors looking to support the 2018 Etchells World Championships and also for people who just want to get involved in the sport of sailing and the club.

If you are a first-time volunteer, training in all areas will be provided and you would be rostered on with experienced team members.

When registering your interest, please specify your time and availability to volunteer.For those who can spare a few days we will be delighted to hear from you.  For those who have helped in these areas before and wish to become involved again, thank you for your past support but can you also please apply.

We look forward to hearing from you and building a top team of volunteers who can provide support both on and off the water and help make the 2018 Etchells Worlds Championships an outstanding success.
