If you have a Rib you can provide for Events throughout the year or are willing to either helm or crew a Rib for events either as safety or race management, we will in future be posting a volunteer sheet to each event page for you to sign up.
If you have a Rib you would be willing to provide, expenses are available per the Rib Policy.
Events can't be run without the generous support of volunteers and parents and it gives us all a great view of the action whilst providing a vital service to provide a safe environment for our sailors.
We are now looking for volunteers to sign up for our Ovington Inland Championships at Grafham Water SC on 18/19 November:
