Sailing / Yacht Club
Jeroen Vos van Avezathe
At the harbour in the old town centre of Medemblik the RYC Hollandia owns a club house where all the materials needed for organizing a regatta are stored, and the volunteers can stay overnight. To reduce the costs of the volunteers for an event, they prepare their own breakfast and lunch bags in the morning, do the necessary grocery shopping at the supermarket, and cook their own dinner after a day of racing. Later in the evening they will be at the pub Brakeboer for a beer or two and talk with the sailors. The RYC Hollandia always needs new volunteers. So if your interested in driving ribs, laying marks with GPS, measuring wind directions and speed, calling OCS, signalling change of course, finishing boats, hoisting flags at the starting vessel, etc.
