Volunteer Work Party in 1999
Volunteer at Sail Sand Point!
Sail Sand Point thrives on the enthusiasm, time, and expertise donated by our community. Our volunteer program allows anyone to get involved at SSP, become part of our community, AND earn free sailing! Volunteers help with a wide variety of projects throughout the year, ranging from facility and boat maintenance to marketing and office assistance.
Anyone interested in volunteering should fill out our adult application form which will create an online volunteer account. (Youth Summer Camp Volunteers: use this form!) Once you have an account and are approved by SSP staff, you will be able to view volunteer opportunities, sign up for shifts, and log your hours! By filling out the application form, volunteers (18+) grant Sail Sand Point permission to run a Washington State background check to ensure the safety of our program participants, volunteers, users, and staff. No training or sailing experience is necessary to participate! Some volunteer areas or special events may require training which Sail Sand Point will provide.
Once enrolled, volunteers may donate their time to ongoing projects or participate in one-day events, as often as they’d like. In return, volunteers receive one hour of Open Boating rental time for every three hours of volunteer service.
*Note* Logging your hours not only benefits you, it also supports Sail Sand Point ‘s annual Public Benefit which helps to offset operating costs for the organization. You can log hours online or in-person in the office.
Already have a Volunteer Impact account? Log in and submit hours here!
All volunteers need to have a current participant agreement on file at SSP. You can sign one here.

Annual Work Parties
Each year Sail Sand Point turns to our wonderful community to help prepare our fleets for the sailing season and ready the site for the off-season. Our volunteer work parties are open to the public and we encourage everyone to come down, lend a hand, and meet old and new friends! Lunch is provided by SSP.
