Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 76th Swiftsure International Yacht Race Week that occurs May 23-27, 2019. Swiftsure relies upon volunteers for the success of the race and you’ll find that volunteering is a great way to be a part of an historic Victoria event while meeting others involved in the race.
If you volunteered for Swiftsure in 2018 your team lead will be in touch with you in February to determine if you’re available to volunteer again in 2019. If you haven’t heard from them by late February please give your lead a call – or complete this form.
If it has been a while since you volunteered, or if you’re new to Swiftsure, please complete this form to add your name to the list of prospective volunteers. We will be in touch in early April to confirm volunteers’ assignments to the role(s) that they’ve requested. Please keep in mind that we may not be able to place you in a requested role, depending upon numbers of returning volunteers. And please note that if certifications such as Radio Operators License or Foodsafe are required for a role, your team lead may wish to confirm that you hold the certificate.
As all volunteers require a basic knowledge of the Swiftsure event as well as of their role(s), team leads will arrange orientation sessions prior to Swiftsure; your participation is required. Dates will be posted on the Swiftsure website and registered volunteers will be notified by their team leads.
