The Indianapolis Sailing Club is a volunteer organization that needs help from all of its members to be successful. We ask that all members volunteer for at least two committee (PRO, ARO, Helper) or safety boat spots. Without full participation from our membership, we cannot run races. Remember that all volunteers need to arrive at least 1 hour before the start of the race listed on the website.
