Sailing Office News

Call out to join the Race Management team at RBYC. With all the racing we have on over the year it takes a large team of volunteers to make it all happy. Whilst we have a fantastic dedicated group we are always looking for new people to join. There are many ways to get involved and full training will be provided. It's a great way to be involved with the club and meet new people. So whether you are a social member or a sailor we hope you can get involved and spare a few days a year to help out. Please contact the sailing office to discuss how you might be able to get involved.

Sign on when sailing

All sailors are reminded that they must sign on when racing and be done before leaving the marina area. If this is not done you will receive a scoring penalty. This is for ALL fleets and is done using the sign on app. Boats that have more than one crew must ensure that all crew have been correctly signed on.
