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 contained in the RED & Blue Folders
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 10 Galley Checklist located on top of the chest freezer. Food selection and preparation is in the A4 BLUE Folder or in the top right upper cupboard A:
- 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.
- Schedule of Menus with applicable costs
We have a very simple system now to provide hot and tasty food. Please READ FULLY the BLUE folder which is in Cupboard A which gives you the instructions, prices, cooking times and time lines. It is easy, and there is a system which needs to be followed to ensure we manage stock control.
- Hot meal menus and instructions
The freezer is stocked with a choice of frozen meals which are all listed in the BLUE folder. Just follow the instructions in the folder.
Do not handle food without washing your hands and not at all if you are feeling unwell. Do not refreeze anything taken out of the freezers on the day. If in doubt chuck it out!!
Rolls are now available filled with pre-cooked frozen chicken, or tuna and sweetcorn, both with mayo. Fillings are found in the Cupboard A, or in the freezer. 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.
