Volunteers: the source of energy

by Nic Douglass 7 Dec 2016 09:55 GMT 7 December 2016

Energy is not something that can always be measured, but the strength and vitality that so many volunteers in sailing bring to the events that and clubs that they help out is an amazing resource that is critical to events such as Sailing World Cup Melbourne.

Here are two of these many volunteers, Yolanda Cole and Ross Wilson, that add to our sport, and this event on a daily basis. I spoke to them about what they love about volunteering, what they love about this event in particular, and what gives them the energy that energises so many around them! Enjoy :)
