Join our HYSA Sailing Ohana
Let's volunteer to make great things happen for our kids!

Check-in with your child's Sailing Director or your club's HYSA Delegate to learn how you can help during the regattas, clinics, or other events. 

We always need help during HYSA regatta Check-in.  We have parent volunteers bagging snacks, selling merchandise, confirming registrants, or helping our dedicated sailing directors however they need.

Frequently Asked Questions

Feel free to contact us to ask a question not listed.

  1. I would like to volunteer, but it may be at the last moment of notice.  Whom do I contact to learn how I could be helpful?

    • Get in contact with your child's Yacht Club Sailing Director or your club's HYSA Delegate.  If your club is hosting a HYSA regatta or other event, they will most definitely need all the volunteers to help make the regatta a club success.

    • Email us at hysaboard.com, and we'll direct you to the right person in our sailing ohana.​

    • Or you can introduce yourself at a regatta Check-in where our awesome team will be glad for your help.

  2. Does my child need to be a  US Sailing Association member?​​

    • Yes, for specific regattas on the HYSA Calendar, such as the US Sailing Area H Chubb Championships, and US Sailing Junior Olympic Festivals.  Always ask your child's sailing director for clarification, and check the NOR - Notice of Race - for each regatta.

      • Most yacht clubs participate in the US Sailing MVP Program.  If not, you can register your child under the HYSA MVP Program to receive a discount on a youth membership.  The discount is $5, thus an annual youth membership would be $25.

  3. What does "NOR" mean? It means "Notice of Race", a document that provides the details and expectations of the regatta.  It includes information on entry fees and registration, membership requirements, schedule, sailing instructions, point of contact, and much more.  The NORs for HYSA regattas can be found in the "Details" of the next five Upcoming Events, or in the folders of the HYSA Shared Files page.
