Volunteer At Hatteras Sailing

We have fun. We make it easy. We get out on the water.

Volunteer at Hatteras Sailing and you get so much back. It really is true that giving is such a great joy. When you volunteer and help out, you form deeper relationships with other local sailors and their parents.

As of June 2022, the Hatteras Sailing membership rates are going up. However, you can offset your annual membership rate with volunteering for specific needs. The leadership and coaches of Hatteras Sailing will post volunteer needs here and set the level of volunteer rewards for each need posted. Some needs require more than one volunteer, others require just one. Once a need is entirely met, it will move from the “Volunteers Needed” to “Thank You” section below.

Please comment if you are able and willing to fulfill one of the needs listed here. Please thank our volunteers when you see them meeting needs!!!
