New Crew Night 2022 - Request for Volunteers

The New Crew Night is an annual event that is designed to raise the awareness of the M242 fleet in Vancouver and ultimately to ease the burden of getting regular crew by recruiting experienced sailors/racers into our fleet. 

In a regular non-COVID year, the NCN would typically attract 50 or more potential new crew members to the event, so putting it together is a worthwhile effort. 

The level of effort required is not onerous but having a few people help out would be appreciated. If you can assist in making this event a success, please email Matt Collingwood at This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • Press relations - circulating pre-written press releases to sailing magazines and clubs;
  • Registration desk on the night of the event;
  • Poster distribution;
  • Supply shopping (list provided);
  • Room setup;
  • Night of the event contest marshall. 

The event will take place in late March 2022 with work starting in early December. 

Best regards,

Matt Collingwood
