DutyMan Update

June 10, 2019
We have now had a few sailing events and DutyMan is proving successful in ensuring members turn up for their duties. PLEASE CONFIRM your duties prior to the event on DutyMan so that we know that you will be turning up (click here for help).

Members have asked for Race Box and Safety Boat training and this is being arranged. Duty checklists for Race Box and Safety Boat are available (click to open). Please read before your duty so you know what is expected.
