The projects below help us continue to build a strong community through our love of the sport of sailing. Our partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation allows for donations to be tax deductible.
Rebuild the club's storage facilities - LC12ftSSC Infrastructure Development
On September 16, 2018 fire destroyed part of our Club. Fourty seven Sabots, Flying 11's, Cherubs and Lasers sailed by over sixty children and teens were lost in the fire. Nothing remains of the storage shed and part of the adjoining slipway was damaged.
In partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation we are fundraising to rebuild the club's storage and launching facilities for current and future generations of sailors.
We estimate the rebuild will be at least $500,000.
Every donation counts, no matter how small!
Support Boats and Equipment for Sail Training
Each year our Club runs a number of Learn to Sail programs that provide young people with an introduction to the sport of sailing. The course is run in club Sabots, designed for children aged from 8 to 12, and Laser 4.7's for older students up to the age of 18 with no or little sailing experience.
The program is supported by volunteer instructors from the club, many of whom are graduates themselves of Learn to Sail.
In partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation donations to this project helps us to maintain our club sabots and Laser 4.7's, provide onwater support boats and also provide the necessary training for our instructors.
