The RBYC Race Management Team are a vibrant group within the Royal Brighton membership who play a vital role in the successful implementation of club racing and regattas.
The Sailing programme continues to grow at Brighton, with more additional race series, social sailing activities and high profile National & World championships for our team members to be a part of. There is always tasks to be done and room to join the team. The volunteers are at the heart of the club and without their ongoing enthusiasm and commitment, our program would not continue to excel.
Opportunities for growth are important, with RBYC offering a number of training activities to help new team members get up to speed, and continue to upskill those already involved. The current group have a wealth of experience and have been responsible for highly successful regattas on the international stage. They take pride in what they do and love mentoring others that wish to be involved.
Any level of experience is welcome, all you need is an interest in being a part of a team, the sport of sailing and how it is conducted.
