Volunteers Training Day
We had a fantastic day on Saturday 12th March with our Volunteers Training Day. With 18 fabulous Volunteers turning up – a great day was had by all.
Topics covered included Support Boat Handling Technics (inc. launching, retrieving, and laying of marker buoys) through to Radio Communications, Nautical Knots (tie and release) and Race Flag overview.
The day finished off with a tasty BBQ for all.
We were happy to see 2 Juniors as a part of the group and hope to encourage more in our Volunteer Program – so spread the word if you know any ‘Adults’ who might be interested.
