Welcome to the 2020 Flying 11’s Volunteers!

Thank you for putting your hand up and time forward for the 2020 Flying 11’s Nationals.  You have signed up to be a part of this exciting event from the 7th to the 8th of December 2019.  As an RQYS volunteer your name has been added to our online rosters and on an easier-to-view spreadsheet (see below). The main event page is here

General RQYS Volunteer information documents:

The Notice of Race (NOR) is available here

The Sailing Instructions are here

RQYS On-Water Safety Management Plan

Medical Emergency Flow Chart

On the first day of this event your report time will be 2.0 hours before the 1st Warning Signal as defined in the Sailing Instructions. This is because we will have a more comprehensive Volunteer briefing.  From thereafter your report time will be 1.5 hours beforehand.  This gives everyone a chance to have a briefing with the Race Officers at the start of the day and get ready to go onto the water.  You will receive a reminder to be at the RQ for the daily briefing approximately 24 hours before your report time. Please report to the Cafe area on time for the Sailors briefing or text Susie on 0438 930 990 if you are unsure where to go.

Please be aware that the weather conditions may prompt an earlier or later  start time than planned.  We will notify you via the roster system email and by text if this is the case. We will endeavor to do this as close to 24 hours ahead of time if possible.

Check the spreadsheet below to make sure I have you in the correct role, on the correct days.  The spreadsheet is in DRAFT format until I am sure nothing will change. Please be aware, changes may occur leading up to the events. I will be sending out more information regarding your role, etc. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me on 07 3396 8666 or email volunteers@rqys.com.au.

Role descriptions are also available – if you are on a Start or Finish boat please review the videos on this page http://www.rqys.com.au/volunteer-training-portal/  they will help explain how the RQYS manages racing. If you are a course layer or a crew on a course boat, please read the role description here: RQYS Volunteers Course Laying Duties

Each volunteer should bring the following:

  • Any personal medications you might need during your time on the water or on shore.
  • If you have any special conditions, such as epilepsy or heart conditions, you have allergies and carry an Epipen, please let others around you know of these or any other medical concerns so they may properly assist in an  emergency.
  • Sun block (SPF 30+ recommended)
  • Weather appropriate clothing. Remember it is cooler on the water and in the wind. A windbreaker, jacket or wet weather gear is suggested.
  • A reusable water bottle (One will be provided to you if you don’t have one)
  • Hat and sunglasses
and if you are on one of the Mark Laying boats…
  • PFD (if you own one, if not we have some at the RQYS)
  • Work/sailing gloves are useful if you are hauling anchors.
  • A change of clothing
On water volunteers are normally in an open boat and will not leave the course until the completion of the day’s events, with the exception of emergencies. For this reason, the items above are very important. Keep your belongings in a waterproof bag , or place your bag in a plastic bag if it is not waterproof. Black soled shoes are to be avoided, as they will mark a boat’s deck. Sandals, thongs or open toed shoes are not recommended on water.
 
Lunch is provided, along with e re-usable water bottle and  a chocolate bar.  Points will be added to your card (one will be provided if you don’t have one), for the sum of $10.00 per day.
