Become A Volunteer
Charleston Community Sailing Inc. would not be possible without the many volunteers who put their time and energy into making our facility and programs accessible. We are always in need of people who want to help out–for one day or for an entire project.
The benefits of volunteering at Charleston Commtunity Sailing Inc. include:
1. A great way to meet people
2. Students can log community service time helping out at the sailing center.
3. Choose which area you want to help out in and how involved you want to be:
~working with kids
~helping sailors with disabilities
~improve the facility
~help maintain boats for our classes
There are countless ways to help out regardless of whether or not you presently know how to sail. Below are some ways that you could spend your time helping CCS:
Our outreach program, Buddy Sail is another great way to become involved in CCS, but also to give back to the community. Every spring, CCS and the Boys and Girls club team up to open the world of sailing to at risk youth. Each program participant is paired with a volunteer from Charleston Community Sailing. As a volunteer, one must have good knowledge of the collegiate 420 and a mastery of basic sailing. If you would prefer to be in a safety boat, we always need volunteers to help out in the motor boats.
HIGH SCHOOL SAILING
Throughout the year CCS hosts a variety of CASSL’s and SAISA events. The volunteers on the race committee make it happen, on and off the water.
~Principal Race Officer (PRO) – serving as coordinator for race events
~Providing support for race day events (set up, race management, chase & mark boats)
Charleston Community Sailing is the host of the Special Olympics Sailing team in South Carolina. Being the only Special Olympics Sailing program in the state, we have quite a large team and would like to keep on growing, but to expand this program we need your help. Each athlete sails with a “unified partner”; this unified partner usually is the person that skippers the boat. As a result, for every athlete we need a dedicated unified partner who will attend practices and events with his or her athlete. If you don’t want to be on the sailboat, we can always use an extra hand on the safety boats during practices and events. Become a part of our Special Olympics “Team Charleston”!
~Junior Instructor: Teach new young sailors the basics of how to sail on 420’s, Optimists and Open Bics. Assist Sailing Instructors on shore and on the water
