Dan Steinitz - Bay of Quinte Yacht Club - Volvo Cars Volunteer of the Month

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015 - Kingston, ON

Dan is not your average volunteer.....he leads by example. When the Bay of Quinte Yacht Club thought of creating a dinghy fleet Steinitz was instrumental in raising awareness amongst the membership and through the community. Dan gathered sponsors and donations to support the club's race team, resulting in more support than the club had ever seen before. The support allowed the club to purchase a fleet of Optimist Dinghies and Lasers. He didn't stop there.... Steinitz went on to build a trailer to carry the boats to events, allowing the youth to travel to races throughout the summer.

Members at the Bay of Quinte Yacht Club call Dan’s enthusiasm contagious! It seems everyone he talks to wants to get involved and volunteer – even those whom have never stepped aboard a boat!

Volunteer positions held:
• Sailing School Committee Member
• Race Team Manager
• Donation and Sponsorship Program Member
• Boat and Trailer Builder

The Bay of Quinte Yacht Club is a Member Club with Ontario Sailing and Sail Canada. The Club’s sailing school is a registered CANSail Training Site, delivering CANSail Dinghy & Sail Canada Keel Boating programs with certified Instructors.
