MYC host IODAI Ulster Championship

We need volunteers!! 

Our BIGGEST event of the year the IODAI Ulster Championships will take place in Broadmeadows on the 19 & 20 May 2018.

We are expecting a HUGE entry with up to 140 boats. . . . this means some 140 children and as many if not more support crew (aka parents) so we need your help. All skills sets welcome, everything from catering, to car parking, to way-finders….we have a role for all…with or without sailing experience. If you’re free to help in the lead up to the event, on either day or even both days please contact us. You’ll be made very welcome.

We have hosted this event successfully in the past and we are working very hard to make sure that this year is going to be our best yet.

This will be a great event for ALL our optimist sailors . . . .  . . even our beginners. We’ll have a dedicated fleet – the Regatta Fleet – complete with coaches, instructors and fun prizes to help our less experienced sailors learn the basics of racing away from the main racing area. All our optimist sailors and their parents should put these dates in their diaries.

We are asking members to volunteer to help with the following:

Safety Boats
Racing Management
Launching and Recovery of Boats, Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday both morning and afternoon
Catering, both days, morning and afternoon slots
Pen Clearance (in advance of the event)
Parking and Traffic management on both days but especially Saturday morning

If you are available can you please contact Darragh Lynch by email or call him 086 604 5581 within the next week. If you prefer to participate in any particular activities from the list above please let him know that too.
