Lee on Solent Sailing Club is run by its members for its members.
It is only through the voluntary efforts of our members that we are able to offer members the activities, services and facilities that they want, when they want, and at a competitive price.
Every member, whether a social or sailing member, gybe club, adult sail training, individual or couple, is expected to show their commitment to the club by volunteering. This is in addition to the racing duties given to sailing members.
People who have volunteered have described it as "rewarding", "fun", "a great way of meeting other members", and "I like to think of it as giving something back".
There are opportunities to volunteer in all aspects of the running of the club sailing (training, racing, open days), social events (formal and informal events), as well as other necessary areas such as maintenance, administration and promotion.
In appreciation of the importance of our volunteers and their efforts throughout the year, we invite members to vote for an individual to be Volunteer of the Month. The person who is awarded this, not only gets a mention on our website, but also gets a drink token to be spent at the bar.
If you would like to volunteer please look at the volunteer rota or contact email@example.com for more information.
Reasons to Volunteer
Most people volunteer because they want to put something back into the Club.
We have lots of opportunities to volunteer that are fun, that provide a way of meeting other members, that give you a sense of achievement, that help you to learn new skills or to practice existing skills, or to pass on your skills or knowledge to other people.
There are also many ways of volunteering that will help introduce people to sailing for the first time and to share your love of sailing with other people.
Volunteer of the Month
In appreciation of the importance of our volunteers and their efforts, we will be inviting members to vote for an individual to be Volunteer of the Month. This might be due to the number of times they have volunteered, the quality of the work they have done, the impact of what they have done, or even the unusual nature of what they have done. Each Volunteer of the Month, not only gets a mention on our website, but also gets a drink token to be spent at the bar.
The Volunteer Party is an annual event, specifically for all those people who have volunteered throughout the year. It is the Club's opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed their time and effort to help the smooth running of the club.
