The Officer of the Day (OOD) is a very varied shore-based duty. It can involve introducing the club to potential new members, issuing day sailing tickets, taking money and credit card payments for equipment on hire, answering queries on the phone, spotting capsized boats and alerting the safety boat coxswain, or making tannoy announcements. Training for all standard tasks is given first thing in the morning by one of the permanent staff and anything out-of-the-ordinary can be passed over to one of these staff members or listed in a book of queries to be dealt with later.

Overall, the duty is varied and highly interesting. It is fascinating to learn what goes on behind the scenes for running the Club and, despite being called a "duty", it makes for a thoroughly absorbing day.
