Website/Results People Needed

As many of you will already know, I have moved outside of the area and I am no longer attending the club regularly. As a result I want to hand over the reins of running the website to someone who is actively involved in the club by the end of this season.

There are 3 main things that I do, and the role could easily be split between 2 or 3 people with appropriate skills/knowledge so there is no need to be a website guru to do all of these.

Firstly,  not so obvious, but a very important part is the collating of the series results. I do this using Sailwave which is purpose built software for sailing results and will run on any windows PC.

Secondly there is the day-to day posting of results and news to the website – this isn’t difficult and if you have the ability to post a message on a forum or facebook etc you would be capable of doing this.

The final thing is any major changes to the website, such as layout changes, updating the software (WordPress) and backups – this is probably the only part that requires any web skills (ideally WordPress), but is also the smallest part of the role.

I am more than willing to help people during a transition phase and will always be available at the end of a phone/email to help – so I promise things won’t just be dumped on anyone who volunteers.

Please consider if you could help with any or all of these roles and feel free to contact me to discuss things.
