The 2018 Etchells Worlds Organising Committee is seeking interest from people who would like to join the team of volunteers for the 2018 Etchells World Championships being held from October 18-27, 2018.  

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.  The regattas and dates are below:

  • 2018 September 8-9 Brisbane Fleet Pre-Worlds Regatta
  • 2018 October 13-16 Queensland State Championship
  • 2018 October 18-27 Etchells World Championships
  • 2019 January 13-18 Etchells Australian National Championship

If you are yet to sign up to get involved with any part of the above series of races, events and activities, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Register your interest by clicking on the button to the right.

Volunteering duties vary from day to day but roughly fall into:

  • On the race track can include race management support, safety and marshalling, rib drivers for tows
  • Off the race track both pre and during the regattas can include boat and sail measurement and safety checks, support with some of the larger social functions, traffic management at the club, organising trophy displays etc.

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.

If you are interested in becoming involved in the 2018 Etchells Worlds and would like further information please email  volunteers@rqys.com.au or register your interest clicking on the button at the bottom of this page.

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 team of top volunteers who can help the Etchells class support both on and off the water and make the 2018 Etchells Worlds Championships an outstanding success.
