Summer work - Support Boat Driver @ Westhaven Marina

Recommended Posts

Summer Support Boat Driver Needed for Westhaven Marina from Jan 2016

We are looking for a reliable paid volunteer to be support boat driver to:

~ Man our 5m inflatable ribs and keep a watch on our dragon boat teams as they train each night.
~ Assist in the unlikely event they capsize.
~ Remind them of the Rules of the Road at Seat (all have had formal training).
~ Identify and communicate hazards to the Steerer.
~ Setup and pack down

~ Keep training locker in orderly fashion

~ Report any equipment repair requirements
~ Daily motor flush.

Other than that it's sitting and enjoying the water and sometimes take a coach on board to do a bit of filming.

Teams that train are:

  • Secondary schools
  • Breast cancer survivors
  • Mixed teams
  • Women's teams

All water lovers and are very social. Safety Operating Procedures are in place, handover will be provided.

Requirements: Must be reliable, own vehicle with tow bar an advantage but we do have tow vehicles available and experienced driving ribs along with rules of the road at sea. First aid also an advantage.
