Not racing in the Ya Gotta Regatta!? Then please consider volunteering for one of the many tasks for the day. 

There are multiple opportunities to get involved throughout the day.  Whether you can pitch in for a full day, or only a couple hours, we appreciate any help you can provide.  Times are listed in each Volunteer registration type, and volunteer needs are listed in chronological order.

You don't need to be racing to help us meet our fundraising goal - all members are encouraged to set up a fundraising page. The top fundraiser and the top team will be recognized at the event.  See the YGR Campaign Page for details and to Create a Team.

Thank you for making the 2023 YGR a huge success!
