Volunteer Opportunities for Social Members and Sailors

The Yacht Club and Island are ours to enjoy and care for and we are reaching out with some fun opportunities to become more involved in the sailing and social experiences. We have openings in the following areas and would love your involvement:

Garden Club:  Calling all Green Thumbs! Team will be tasked to add beauty to our island with flowers, plantings and landscaping elements. Team will develop a plan and budget and will be tasked to implement and maintain their vision.

Island Maintenance: Minnesota winters and spring storms reek havoc on our facilities. This team will be on call for spring clean up, storm maintenance and some special projects.

Photography - Race and Regatta:  Shutterbugs with a taste for the water can join our safety and committee boat teams during races to capture the excitement (or not)  for use on our Website  and Annual Program Directory.

Photography - Social and Island Events: For shutterbugs who prefer to stay on terra firma, we also need photographers to capture our antics on land.

Race Committee Support and Safety: Come out and support our racing efforts and keep us all safe by joining this committee. You will help our staff set up and monitor our races, and be there in case of an emergency, capsize, or stranded boats. You my just learn a little about the sport of racing. Members with and without boats are welcome.

Wednesday Night Hosts: Wednesday nights are especially fun as everyone races and then we gather on Lighthouse Island for a little beer, wine and a bite to eat. We are looking for non-sailing members to serve as hosts for these nights, aiding and supervising the set up, supporting the catering staff, and welcoming members and guests to the island. Looking for 2 to 4 per event.

Learn to Crew: For those 11 or older, we are looking at you for our crews! Volunteer to learn to crew on a sailboat during races. We ask for a 3 race commitment. We just might make sailors out of you.
