Volunteer Requirements

We all volunteer to keep our sail pass each year.
Here’s the requirements and ways to volunteer:

ASI is a non-profit, and for the most part, all-volunteer organization. ASI is dependent upon the
involvement of our members for success. Let us know what your skills are, and where you’d like to participate.

Volunteer hours are satisfied by performing maintenance, instructing, being a dock master,
and in many other areas (check “this link” for a more complete list).
