Please remember to bring sailing clothing and personal buoyancy, as you may need to help with safety duties on the water as a priority over galley tasks, should the on water crew be short handed. The provisions you are requested to bring may change from time to time so please note the current requirements for your specific day shown below.
Please arrive at 9.30am as this will be a special event day. You do not need to bring any provisions. Finishing times may vary depending on the event. Some events may go into the evening in which case you may be contacted separately and asked to arrive later and stay later.
The Galley opens at 10.00. Please be at the Club at least 30 minutes before this. The galley closing time is after the last race sailors are off the water and the Galley Closing Task List has been completed, usually between 16.00 and 17.00. As there is now only one galley person on Sunday duty (except on “Open or Special Event” days) it is very important to make every attempt to arrive on time and stay to complete your duty tasks.
You should please bring:
Reimburse yourself from the cash till.
The Galley opens at 18.30. Please be at the Club at least 30 minutes before this. There are two persons on Wednesday galley duty, Principal/Chief and Assistant.

Galley Information and Instructions
If you are Principal you are likely to be contacted beforehand to be advised of the planned menu and duties.
The majority of the information you will require for your Galley Duty can be found in the Galley A4 Red Folder and Proc 1-7 Galley Checklist located on top of the chest freezer that contains:
- Galley Duty sign on and record sheet
You must sign the log sheet to show that you have completed your duty. Please also record the fridge and freezer temperatures at the start and end of the duty and add the totals of bacon, filled rolls and hot meals served.
Rolls (cheese or tuna @£1.20, bacon rolls @ £1.50)
Jacket Potato @ £3.00
Hot Meal @ £3.50
Hot Meal @ £4.00
- Schedule of Menus with applicable costs
From which you can find the catering planned for your duty day. A copy will also be circulated to all members by email each time it is updated.
- Numbered hot meal menus and instructions
Where possible, we are using precooked meals which just need heating through otherwise the menus are straightforward and can be found in the red folder.
Do not handle food without washing your hands and not at all if you are feeling unwell. Only put labelled leftovers back in the fridge and do not refreeze anything taken out of the freezers on the day. If in doubt chuck it out!!
Rolls are now available filled with cheese or tuna mayo. Fillings are found in the fridge or in the canned food cupboards. Please only make up to order. Make bacon rolls available on Sundays, only when a hot meal is not scheduled. Rolls and bacon in small packs are in the freezer. Use 2 rashers per roll and only make to order. Do not refreeze.
Reduce your work load by encouraging members and visitors to use the “Self Serve Area” for Tea, Coffee and Chocolate, using the honesty box, especially when you are busy serving up. Keep this area regularly topped up.
At the end of the day, ensure things are left clean and safe ready for next time. To comply with the latest hygiene regulations we no longer use dishcloths or tea towels.
A committee member or Flag Officer will help you if you get stuck with anything. The Officer Of the Day will guide you as to timings of races and when he expects people to arrive in the Clubhouse after sailing.
Please let us know of any errors or problems you encounter with this information, or if you have any suggestions for change that may help improve your galley duty experience by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org NOT TO THE ROTA SECRETARY.
