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 terrafirma, 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
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.
