    Default Latest news from SSS main page. Call for Volunteers!


    Calling all hands, calling all hands! We are in need of eager sailors that want to pitch-in and keep our SSS vessel on track. We have openings for a Treasurer and Race Information Officer. The terms are for 3 years, but we are flexible if a shorter period is more suitable.

    Self nominations welcomed by emailing or any board members listed on our contacts page. Nominees should put forth their relevant experience, but our hands-on training, the envy of German and Japanese efficiency, is available. Single-handed racing experience highly preferred. Nominations will close at the end of Sunday, Dec. 13th and the board will vote on Dec. 17.

    Treasurer’s key duties:
    -Actively participates in discussions and votes on SSS matters & decisions.
    -Maintains permanent records to track funds and financial transactions
    -Leads the development of a budget and prepares annual budget for adoption
    -Pays all SSS bills as authorized by board
    -Prepares reports for every board meeting and an annual financial report
    -Ensures taxes and reports required by federal and state governments are completed and submitted by the due dates

    -Benefits: As the Purser, you get to hold the money even though it is not yours. Profess yourself as a board member of the highly esteemed SSS, founded in 1978.

    Race Information Officer key duties:
    -Reports to Race Chair and Race Committee
    -Primarily reviews and approves entrants on Jibeset in a timely manner in advance of race dates.
    -Actively participates and influences board discussions but will not have an official vote.
    -Monitors Registration on a daily basis from race registration opening to a couple of days before race date.
    -Assists and resolves issues that registrants may have. On occasion this involves calling registrant on your cell.

    -Benefits: Enter races without any particular guilt unlike other board members who may performing race committee duties. “Voice of the SSS” leading up to race day: you will be the first human contact for many new, returning and potential racers.

    Thank you,

    Joe Balderrama
