For the 2017-18 season, Avalon Sailing Club are implementing a cloud-based, off-the-shelf rostering solution ‘DutyMan’ which is successfully used by many sailing clubs around the world (e.g. RPAYC).

DutyMan brings the following key benefits:

  • Simpler, more efficient management of the roster by the Roster Manager.
  • Ability for members to self-nominate, confirm and organise duty swaps on-line.
  • Ability for members to volunteer for duties to suit their own preferences and availability
  • Automated duty notification, reminders and up-to-date roster viewing/printing.
  • Smartphone views and iCal calendaring integration.

 Broadly the implementation process will be:

  • An email from the Dutyman system, detailing an email/password for members logging onto the system
  • Members testing their log-in and reviewing updating their details/preferences as required
  • Members Self-selection (volunteering) for roster duties
  • Members Confirming their ability to carry out an allocated duty
  • Members Self-organising any duty swaps that arise due to changes in circumstances
  • Roster Manager allocating duties to members for non-allocated duties

An extensive help system is provided within DutyMan, ASC are also planning extra documentation to assist with the operation of the DutyMan roster.

ASC believe that offering a self-rostering system is a significant benefit to members, but recognise that the success of the system is entirely reliant on members willing and enthusiastically self-nominating. By selecting early members will now have better control of times and dates that suit them. Without complete rosters, we will be unable to run our full and successful Sunday sailing programs and we ask for members' enthusiastic support of the new system.

There are multiple links to the ASC Duty Guide which gives detailed information about the details and activities associated with the role. ASC enthusiastically supports our members exploring and developing new capabilities - perhaps some of our more seasoned members might like to use their experience in support of the Centreboard group and help the youngsters develop a similar love of sailing? Centreboard racing requires significant resourcing, so any help you could provide would be gratefully received!

Please note that if roster duties are unallocated as the duty date draws near, the Roster Manager will review and allocate out duties to members (with email notification) to ensure the sailing programs can proceed. Your support of any duty allocations allocated to you is also anticipated and appreciated.
