Teaching is the best way to get involved with Community Boating, meet new people, and improve your own sailing skills. Without volunteer instructors and people willing to take newcomers out on training sails, there wouldn’t be much of a community in Community Boating. To find the position best suited for you, visit our Volunteer Faculty page.
Interested in something more communal? Join one of the seasonal work parties! They focus on hauling, maintaining, and launching our fleet in the fall, winter, and spring respectively.
Fleet and Facility
This is a great chance for members good with their hands to get involved. With our large fleet of Mercuries, there’s always some work to do. Visit our Support Us page to get started.
Active volunteers may also be asked to represent CBI at various community events, such as open houses and boat shows. If you would be interested in representing CBI at an event, contact [email protected] with “Event Volunteering” in the subject line.
If you are already a volunteer and are looking to be even more involved, join our corporation and become a part of CBI’s organizing body. This is a great chance to support CBI through preserving its heritage for future generations.
Looking for a way to volunteer not mentioned here? Our Support Us page has other opportunities that members and non-members can also partake in.
Community Boating is a special place in large part because of our volunteers, who dedicate their time to teach classes, fix boats, serve on committees, organize events, and participate in many other projects. Each year, the Board of Directors recognize outstanding volunteers for their contributions to furthering CBI’s mission of “Sailing for All” through two awards – The Volunteer of the Year Award and the Ed Long Outstanding Volunteer Award.
