Whether you are relatively in-experienced or fully qualified, we would love to hear from you. There are many opportunities to Volunteer at BYS with the Petersville Regatta, WASZP State Championships and the Victorian Youth Championships all being held this 2018/2019 Sail Season.

We rely on our valued Members and Volunteers to deliver our regular club racing program which allows BYS to host national and international regattas from time to time. Our volunteers also support our sail training programs, ensuring our Junior and Youth fleets receive the skills and opportunities they need to enjoy a lifetime of sailing.

We also offer training in the following areas: Course Laying, RIB Driving and Race Management.  If you are simply looking for a social network and to Volunteer your time, we are always looking for more volunteers to help with off and on water positions including radio operators, start box team members, patrol boat drivers and crew.

The aim at BYS is to have fun, support our family orientated club, utilise our skills and develop our abilities, achieve personal goals and ambitions and attain qualifications relevant to our roles.
