Sailing Club Galley operator / assistant

Port Hacking Open Sailing Club Inc.

Port Hacking Open Sailing Club promotes dinghy sailing for all age groups and is a family orientated, community based “not for profit” organisation that has been an active part of the Sutherland Shire Community for over 75 years. Tucked away on one of the best vantage points in Yowie Bay the club has a broad membership structure with club members from as young as 5 years of age to our senior members in their 80’s+. PHOSC volunteers provide a significant contribution to the local community by promoting dinghy sailing as a safe and affordable family-based community activity.

We currently have a very experienced galley manager running our kitchen, however he is also an active sailor at the club and needs someone to "mind the shop" while he is busy rigging his boat. So the commitment would be for just a few hours on Sunday around lunch time during the racing season from Sept - April (excluding school holidays).

Even if you’re not a sailor, our established team of volunteers at PHOSC will welcome you to the club, as we have volunteer roles covering most areas - and we are grateful for any support. Previously our canteen has been run by volunteer parents & grandparents and is ideal for people that want to make new friends and become part of a very family orientated and friendly club. We do not have poker machines or an alcohol licence, so our income is from food sales and membership.

We are always looking for: • Galley assistants - food preparation and sale • Race Starter – our race starter (based in the clubhouse) is always looking for assistance in recording boats finish times and co-ordinating race starts and finishes. • Maintenance – hands on people to assist with maintenance, that like tinkering in the clubhouse or on motorboats and dinghy’s • Administration - supporting our committee with membership, secretarial and other duties • On-water - supporting our experienced support boat operators during club racing.

We can fully train our volunteers in many areas, and for those who want to help us long-term, we will support you to receive additional accredited qualifications (i.e., power boat handling, sailing coaching accreditation etc).

Come and join our great team we look forward to meeting you.
