Westbere Sailing Opportunities is run by an enthusiastic and dedicated team of volunteers.

 

Some members have been volunteering since it’s inception, some have come with sailing experience, others have none.

All volunteers are welcome and we create a safe and fun environment to give sailing members a wonderful experience on and off the water, at a beautiful natural lake setting. 

 

We are always happy to welcome new volunteers to our team. We know that your time is precious but it is one of the great things that you can give to help others.       

 

WE AIM TO

 

  • Welcome you into a wonderful team of volunteers

  • Make the experience of helping, a fun and rewarding experience

  • Give you the opportunity to learn skills through giving

  • You will know that you are making a difference and enriching the lives of all the sailing members and carers who visit the lake  

 

WHAT DO VOLUNTEERS DO

 

  • There are admin jobs to be done for the smooth running of the  organisation

  • Preparing the site for the day’s activities - erecting a shelter, getting lifejackets prepared, getting support boats on the water and lots more!

  • Help sailing members prepare to go afloat and assist them onto the pontoon and into the boats

  • Crew and helm the dinghies

  • Help or drive the support boats

  • Get trained in sailing skills to enhance your experience and grow in confidence

  • Maintain the fleet over the winter period to keep it in top condition

  • Help with marketing, recruitment or fund-raising

 

YOUR TIME IS PRECIOUS

  • We know people have busy lives and can’t commit to being there every week, so we can fit you into a schedule which suits your availability.

                                                                                                      One thing we can’t control is the weather, so the sun may shine or the rain may pour but whatever the weather we can be sure everyone will enjoy the experience!
