Duties

The club relies on its members to run its sailing activities, both racing and leisure sailing. It would be impossible to provide safe and enjoyable sailing without the commitment of the members and as such it is a condition of membership that members carry out their allocated duties.

Duties can be fun, for new members they are a good way of meeting existing members and can help to bridge between leisure sailing and racing.

Adult members are expected to carry out 3 duties each season, if they have a Family Membership their partner can do a duty on the same day.

Duties are arranged using the Dutyman software, new members will be given a login and help with the system. Members can use the system to select duties on dates they prefer and use it to swap duties.

This year their have been 429 individual duties to allocate. This is an increase in last year as their are more Dodd Squad and Ladies Who Launch sessions.

This year their are 44 Sunday racing days, 48 Saturday, Wednesday and BH leisure sailing days, 10 Dodd Squad and 14 Ladies Who Launch days with Safety Boat Cover arranged. Their are also the 4 sessions that John Harrison and John McDonald will hold on Sundays during the summer.

This is the third year we have used the Allocation Roster whereby members could select their own duties. 292 were self allocated out of 429.

Some members chose to allocate themselves more than their required number of duties, this has been a great help in compiling the duty roster. Thank You

 

A members feedback on the Dutyman system

My feedback is ‘BRILLIANT & FANTASTIC EASY TO USE SYSTEM’ well done!

I was genuinely contemplating not renewing this year due to limited sail time verses duty commitments, but having this ability to easily select dates that I know I will be able to accommodate has removed the main dilemma for me. So ‘Carry on Cruising’for me!
