Duties of the Officer of the Day
We use the Dutyman system to help run the club on Saturdays and Sundays. For more information see the Dutyman site:
- Officers of the Day (OODs) are appointed by the Management Committee from the Membership to assist in the safe and efficient running of the Club whilst the Club is open.
- The OOD Rota is published in “Clubline” and a reminder is sent shortly before a Member’s turn comes round. Members who cannot attend should advise the Rota Secretary, whose details are shown in “Clubline” and on the reminder notice, as soon as possible, in order that a more convenient date may be assigned.
- Tasks that may be assigned include rendering assistance to the Safety Officer (Water), Race Officer, Galley Manager and Bar Steward as well as assisting with Site and Clubhouse management, maintenance and cleaning.
- On arrival at the Club, OODs should sign the OOD Book and report to the Security Officer (or other Committee Member) who will assign tasks as required.
- Unless otherwise instructed by the Security Officer, OODs should remain within the Club site boundaries while the Club is open and may not depart without notifying the Security Officer.
- OODs perform a vital function in the efficient running of the Club and it is important that Members attend when it is their turn. This assists the Club to maintain subscriptions at an affordable level and is one of the Members’ responsibilities laid down in the Club Constitution and Rules to which you affirm when you accept or renew your Membership.
Please Note: Any family members accompanying an OOD on a duty day are welcome to assist with necessary tasks.
