Helping run the club
French Bay Yacht Club is run by volunteers. Being a member means volunteering some of your time to help run activities and support the club, which in turn, helps it grow. You can help the club by:
Volunteering your time to support club activities on a roster. Roster duties include patrol boat / safety crewing, running the galley, being Officer of the Day etc. You’ll only be asked to do tasks you feel comfortable with.
Helping to organise things such as boat maintenance, regattas, fundraising and social events.
Please contact a Committee Member to find out more about what it’s like at FBYC, or better still pay us a visit on a sailing day.
