We have around 10-15 people on grounds committee, the bulk of the work involves keeping the grass cut and strimmed, with occassional maintenance work.
10-15 people on Piers and Harbors committee maintain and upgrade the decked launching area in front of the clubhouse and the piers themselves. A constant task of renewal.
Race committee run the 4 Spring and 4 Fall series races plus the Summer Solstice and Endless Summer regattas and the Club championship race at the end of the year. Race committee is a little different to other committees as the 15-20 people all do only 3 duties and make up the other duty elsewhere (e.g. grounds, piers, etc.) Also people from some other committees do 1 race duty and only 3 duties on their "home" committee. This ensures we are training up enough people to run races in the future and that these people get the opportunity to race instead of just running them.
The House committee of around 10-15 ensure the clubhouse is maintained, secure and peform any modifications necessary.
5 people on Regatta committee organize our two regattas (Summer solstice and Endless Summer) including working on the day for registrations, etc.
Our Social committee of up to 10 people organize our parties throughout the year - 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Commodores Ball and all the other catering such as for work parties, Fajita and Margarita, etc.
Youth committee (around 10 people) runs the youth sailing program and also this year the sail and social day.
We have learn to sail and windsurf committees that provide lessons and mentoring for beginner and intermediate sailors and windsurfers.
There are also other specific individual roles such as maintaining the rescue boats, stocking the fridges with drinks, etc.
If there is a no show there will be a fine of $125 against the members account. The reason for this is that there is always the ability to opt out of duties for $750/year and a difficult job of organizing a committee is made that much harder by no shows. If you cannot make an allotted duty, simply inform the committee governor who can rearrange a task for a later date.
