Like all community based clubs, MHYC relies upon a large group of volunteers to conduct its sporting and social program.
The roles for volunteers at a sailing club are numerous and diverse, suiting people with a wide range of skills and interests.
MHYC conducts a busy program of club racing and regattas through the year (about 700 races by division) and volunteers are sought for both on-water and onshore roles. A Competitors Volunteer Scheme operates which provides 1 or 2 crew from competing yachts to help support the race management team. The club also supports volunteers with accredited and non-accredited training.
