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, fundraising and social events.
