Countdown to Swiftsure


Wanted – Swiftsure Tech Volunteers – Passion is the Key January 20, 2015

Swiftsure is an incredible yacht race with smart & passionate volunteers! We have Alec Matthews in Newfoundland doing ALL the system work remotely to keep the Swiftsure technical machinery smooth.  He’s amazing and he’d like help.

If you have 2-3 hours a week and have the skills and desire to be Swiftsure’s Technical Right Hand, please contact Dennis McMillan at This position can happen remotely, with the opportunity to be present at the Swiftsure event if this appeals.  Much is possible for the right person.

Also, in Victoria we seek a Swiftsure SPOT Technical Support person to work with our SPOT Lead, Robert Johnson (a great guy) for 2-3 hours a week.  You are the centre of race action in this role.
