Call for Volunteers

The Cockburn Sound Regatta has been a major West Australian Regatta for 60 years, attracting Yachts and Sailors from all up and down the Coast of Western Australia and beyond, but none of this would be possible without the support of volunteers.

Would you like to be part of something really special between Christmas and New Year's Eve?

Volunteering for The Cockburn Sound Regatta is easy and helps to avoid the post-Christmas slup, and is a fun and rewarding way to join others in being a part of keeping this important sporting tradition alive.

The Regatta is gaining strength each year as a ‘must do’ event.

There are plenty of roles to get involved with, both on and off water with continuous entertainment in an enviable location.

Members, get involved, support your club and bring your family and friends in too. 

It is well known that the benefit always exceeds the effort.

Join us as a volunteer for the 60th Anniversary Cockburn Sound Regatta.
