Glandore Harbour Yacht Club

Race Support

All   racing hosted at GHYC requires at a minimum a Race Officer and Race Assistant, and also a Race Support Boat  which may also help with ferrying crew out to the yachts.  The larger regattas will need additional support, such as shore teams, additional mark boats and safety boats.

Historically there is a difference in how support is done for keelboat events and dinghy events. For keelboats GHYC policy is to pay these teams for their time, and where possible to recruit people who need powerboat driving time to complete logbooks for the support boat crew.  please refer to the link below for the remuneration rates for those doing these jobs.

For the dinghy events the practice has been that the sailors and their families have covered the support for these events without remuneration and this has kept the dinghy race fees down.

The truth is though that both events cannot be properly run withour support teams, either voluntary or paid, and the club relies on the members including youth members to provide this support.  We have created a list of who is supporting each race  and this is available via the links below.
