Volunteer of the Year

Without volunteers, sail boat racing in Vancouver would not exist. It’s that simple. So many people volunteer hundreds of hours to make racing in Vancouver and our VARC series the success that it is. We, at VARC, are very grateful to all of them and a big shout out and thank you to you all! But each year, one person stands out in the crowd. This year, for us at VARC, it is Jennifer Ross. Below is a list of what Jenn has volunteered for, and educated herself in for the sailing community. Thank you does not seem enough for someone who is so dedicated…..but…..thank you Jenn, for your hours of dedication to educating yourself, and volunteering so that we all can enjoy what we love to do in this amazing place, racing our sailboats in Vancouver.
