Rescue Boats

Volunteers Wanted!

Do you know someone who is free on Sundays? Do they like powerboats? Are they interested in sailing? If so they might be the right person to join the BYC rescue boat team. BYC is looking for adults to join our Race Management team on a voluntary basis during club sailing on summer Sunday afternoons. Race Management is an enjoyable, exciting and vital part of organised sailing on the bay and involves diverse and challenging situations in all weather conditions.


  • BYC operates two Swiftcraft Dominator powerboats with Mariner 135hp outboard engines

  • These boats are used to manage the on-water sailing operations at BYC, including laying marks of the course, running starts and finishes and assisting boats and sailors in distress.

  • Roles as both boat skippers and crew available

  • Full training in BYC operations is provided

  • External training through Yachting Australia is provided as appropriate


  • Sunday afternoons from midday until approximately 5pm, October to April (break over Christmas/New Year)

  • Occasional days other than Sundays for events or training - plenty of notice will be provided.

What to bring

  • Suitable clothing to get wet in and stay warm, eg. shorts, wool/fleece jumpers, hat and preferably a windproof jacket of some sort. You WILL get wet!

  • Enclosed footwear when on board is mandatory

  • Spare clothes and towel etc. Changeroom facilities including showers are available
