To make this event a success we rely on numerous volunteers across a variety of roles. Some of these require accredited officials whilst many of the roles do not require such qualifications other than keenness and a sense of willingness to assist.

Assistance will be required from the Friday 10 April through to Sunday 12 April at a time of your choosing. 

On Friday 10 April assistance will be required with registration of competitors and the sale of merchandise and championship dinner tickets.  Times required are from 9:00am to 12:30pm or 12:30pm to 4:00pm.

The first session of racing on the Saturday will involve all under 16 and all veteran competitors.  The second session will involve the selection age groups and classes for men international canoes and women classes.  The third session is for all other men selection age groups and classes.

To finish the championships there will be 2 sessions of racing on Sunday with volunteers required for 7:00am to 11:00am and 10:30am to 2:00pm.
