About Us

Volunteers are essential to making the sport accessible and there are many different ways you can become involved, including roles that don’t require any prior sailing experience.
CYC Sailability welcomes new volunteers and many will be offered training to assist them in their roles.
The types of training for volunteers may include:
  • Rigging boats
  • Welcoming sailors and carers
  • Dock hands helping getting sailors into boats
  • Safety boat drivers and crew
  • Administration of daily operations
  • Boat maintenance 


Some of the other volunteer opportunities with Sailability include: fundraising, media and public relations, general administration, social activities organiser, volunteer recruitment and event support. People of all abilities are encouraged to become volunteers. 

Those wishing to help and volunteer for the Sailability Program at the CYC will have to obtain a Working with Vulnerable People Card, this can be done on-line and is FREE for those volunteering for this activity with Sailability CYC. Click here to get your card.
