Looking for Adult Volunteers
Who would Love to Help Children Learn to Sail or Sail Better

July 3 to July 27, Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Colington Yacht Club offers the Youth Sailing Program in the Harbour. Allan Norton, Gene Meacham and myself, all US Sail Instructors, are present and responsible for the program. Ryan Hatch, an ASA sailing instructor, watches over us as our consultant. But we can’t do this program without incredibly robust volunteer help.

Our adult volunteers keep our sailors safe on and off the water. Their presence helps us attend to each sailor’s experience, emphasizing the fun to be found in sailing and teaching them the skills they need. When we have volunteers that want to teach something, we certainly take advantage of their knowledge.  But we need all sorts of folks whether they have sailing skills or not.

Volunteers choose what they want to do. Some of the things we need are:

While folks that show up because they happen to have time are sometimes helpful, we’d like to know beforehand who our volunteers are. We plan our teaching exercises and our learning games around our help.  If you wish to volunteer, you are invited to Sharron and Rick Hildebrandt’s home, 246 Outrigger Drive, (Colington Harbour) on June 20 at 5:30 p.m. We’ll have a get to know each other time, answer your questions, and ask you to tell us when you are available.

If you want to help and can’t make the meeting, CLICK HERE for a copy of the sign up sheet that you can email back to me.

Fair winds,
