                                                 ROTA DUTIES

South Shields Sailing Club is run entirely by volunteers.

As a member of the Club you have agreed to assist in its running by undertaking a small number of duties
each season. New members are not usually added to the rota until their second year of membership.
Failure to carry out such duties jeopardizes sailing events, as sailing will not take place without
appropriate safety cover. It is also unfair to expect members to cover for another member’s failure to do
their share of duties.

On average, only three rota duties are required each season from each member.
If you cannot carry out your duty as shown on the rota (to be distributed at the start of the season) would
you please try to organize a swap with another member?
Otherwise flag the problem up on the copy of the rota in the wet room so that we are at least aware
that there is a problem.

It is recognized that not all members are trained or experienced in the duties; this will be addressed by
pairing novices with experienced members. Help notes are also provided – this applies in the kitchen too.
To assist in organizing the rota to everyone’s convenience, the duties are set out below. Please write your
name in the boxes against the duties you are comfortable with.
If you need some training in certain duties, please indicate by writing your name in the appropriate box.
This includes the kitchen!!
