Thank you for your interest in joining our program as a volunteer.
Rotary Sail into Life cannot operate without the help of volunteers and there are a range of roles to suit everyone.
Please see below what our Volunteer roles include.
Rig and prepare the dinghies and sail the dinghies with a participant. This may range from assisting participants to skipper the dinghies, teaching sailing skills, or sailing with people who just want to take in the view.
Coordinating the coming and going of boats and people safely from the pontoon. Assisting people to safely board and disembark the dinghies including operating the hoist when necessary to lift people with limited mobility.
Ensuring the safety of the sailors by helping to staff the rescue craft.
Carrying out general start up checks and maintenance of the rescue craft.
Greeting participants on arrival, maintaining attendance records, fitting life vests and directing people to the jetty as required.
There are many other ways you can assist in the program including taking photos, promotion, catering, maintenance and more. No experience is necessary but volunteers must be friendly, flexible and able to commit three or four hours one day per week during the summer season.
By assisting you will be rewarded with the sense of satisfaction knowing that you are a part of providing an opportunity for local people with disabilities to be involved in a fun and adventurous recreational activity. Benefits include: Learning new skills, meeting amazing people, attending social functions and having fun.
