Volunteering at CYC

CYC is a wonderful community of people who all love to sail. Each of us has unique skills and we like to pitch in with our time and expertise. By volunteering, we build a strong sailing community, while supporting each other and our club.  There are a variety of ways you can help. Whether you volunteer for a bar shift, plan a social event or help maintain the race committee boat, we welcome your participation. Please see below for contact information or contact the office at: office@cycseattle.org.



Get involved and have your say! Here are today’s volunteer opportunities:

  1. Race Committee for PSSC – October 8, 9 and/or October 15, 16

Volunteer: Bartender

To maintain our low prices, CYC relies on member volunteer bartenders. Email the office or Mike Taft if you have any interest in helping out behind the bar. What better way to get to know your fellow members? If you already have your WA State MAST permit, sign up for a shift now! If you don’t have your permit, contact the office and we can schedule you a training and test run.

Volunteer: Race Committee

Help the Race Committeee. Sign up for a shift now! This is a great way to get out on the water, learn more about racing and have fun with fellow members.

Volunteer: Cruising Team

CYC Cruising is in need of volunteers to help with some of the the many parts of maintaining an active, thriving cruising community at CYC. Current opportunities include the organization of new cruises, updating reciprocal guest moorage information, and updating and maintaining the cruising ListServe. To volunteer, contact CYC Fleet Mike McGuane (mikehmc@gmail.com).

Volunteer: Juniors Open Sailing

The Friday Open Sailing for Kids program is a volunteer parent-run program and is free with CYC Family Membership or Sail Camp Registration. This is a great opportunity for kids to get out on the water and become comfortable in a sail boat. We need parent volunteers that will volunteer as a lead.  They will be responsible for ensuring each parent signs a waiver and to help kids in and out of the Optis.  This program is ran entirely by volunteers.  Notify the office at office@cycseattle.org if have any interests in volunteering!
