Laser 4.7 World Championships – Call for Volunteers!

The NYC is jointly hosting (with the RSGYC) the ILCA Laser 4.7 World Championships from Saturday 7th August to Saturday 14th August 2021

After much uncertainty due to a fast changing pandemic situation, it is now confirmed that the event will go ahead unless further travel restrictions are in place…but for now, over 220 entries from 31 countries are expected!

We are looking for volunteers both ashore (logistics pre-event / measurement / launching and retrieving during racing days) and afloat (mark laying / rescue) to ensure that the event can be run in a safe and smooth way.

So no matter if you can commit for the full event or just for one day, EVERY VOLUNTEER COUNTS!!

Please use the form here to view roles and requirements and to make yourself available…
