Help is at hand, recovering your boat safely!
All together now, heave!
I can see Southend!
Beautiful even with the tide going out!
Seasalter Sailing Club needs your help so please come and join in - it can be fun!
Volunteering, so what’s it all about? Well, in our book, if anyone manages to catch your eye then you have volunteered!
The club has grown over the years since 1952, and was completely rebuilt in 1979, thanks to the efforts of our predecessors. This has developed a culture of banding together to make things happen which has continued to the present time. Nowadays some jobs we do are different, requiring expertise on ipads, laptops or taking photos for our website. Other jobs never change. There will always be tea to make and washing up to do in the galley and the grass to be cut in our boat field. If you have plumbing, woodwork, or decorating skills you will have plenty opportunity to practice at the club. ( I hear you groan ........ dont worry there is plenty time for sailing too! )
As we develop our sailing and social scene we need to expand our merry gang of helpers. We try to organise 2 or 3 work parties each year, so please don’t be shy, any job can be fun if you have a few likeminded sailors around you, perhaps using those muscles taking a turn mowing in the boat field or even doing some baking to feed hungry workers. At other times it is just a case of many hands make light work, pushing boats, helping to launch/recover the patrol boats, clearing up after our larger sailing social events. Alternatively you may have sailing tips that you would like to pass on to others or if you are a seasoned sailor perhaps you could offer a beginner the opportunity to crew with you?
The jobs are not generally too taxing, but you can really work up a thirst, so our bar is quite handy and the view across the Swale as you relax on the balcony watching the setting sun is not to be missed.
Please contact our sailing or social committee members via the website, or just talk to anyone at the club who looks like they might need a hand, we look forward to hearing from you.
