Vice Commodore

Duties of Vice Commodore

The Vice Commodore should:

  • Create a Social calendar for the members in conjunction with the Sailing calendar. (At the discretion of the Vice Commodore, a Social Sub-committee may be formed in order to share the responsibilities, planning & attendance. These volunteers are to help the Vice Commodore and are not considered members of the Cowes Yacht Club General Committee.) The Social calendar is to be both emailed and posted to all members, posted on the Cowes Yacht Club website, as well as displayed in a prominent place in the Clubrooms
  • Organise a kitchen working bee in conjunction with the Club general working bees in order to get the kitchen and clubrooms ready for the social and sailing season
  • Organise with the Bass Shire Health Dept. to get our kitchen registration certificate updated. This requires a kitchen inspection and is usually held straight after the first working bee
  • Organise a team to provide refreshments for the club's Official Opening of the Sailing Season
  • Organise the morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea roster for the Tackers Sailing Program
  • Liase and organise a food stall for raising external additional funds during the Nippers Program
  • If it is the year that Cowes Yacht Club is host for the Yachting Westernport Off The Beach Challenge (every 4 years), volunteers must be organised to provide hot food to sell to raise external additional funds for the Club
  • Attend regular monthly Committee meetings when possible as planned by the General Committee
  • Be sure that correct financial reconciliations are completed after each Social function, and that the monies are deposited into the Club bank account at the earliest convenience. Receipts of these takings must be kept and submitted to the club Treasurer at the conclusion of the sailing season in time for the annual audit
  • Educate new kitchen workers/volunteers on correct kitchen operating procedure, cleanliness, and operation of kitchen appliances
  • Support the Commodore whenever required and possible
