Volunteer for the SYSCO Race Committee Boat
Published 11:23am on 6 Mar 2022
Small Yacht Sailing Club of Oregon, SYSCO, is providing OWSA members an opportunity to volunteer on the Race Committee (RC) boat through the upcoming racing season. Signup up here by making a free booking. No experience is needed, all training will be provided on the RC boat. Volunteers will be selected for specific races by SYSCO based on a first come sign up basis. Volunteers will be given specific instructions on when to be at the dock, the location of the RC boat and any other information needed. Generally, the boat leaves the dock between 5:00 - 5:15 pm from a marina either on Marine Drive or Tomahawk Island and is out on the river until the last boat finishes the race on Tuesday and Thursday night, usually around 8-8:30.
This is a great way to meet sailors, be on a boat surrounded by sailboats racing, to support the sailing community and learn about the roles of the crew on the committee boat who manage the race. The spring race series starts on April 19th and racing is every Tuesday night and Thursday night through August. You will be contacted by the Sysco Race Captain, Denny Damore to schedule your time on the Race Committee Boat.
