Help build optimism in disabled and disadvantaged people Donate Now

Mission

We aim to improve the lives of disabled and disadvantaged people through our sailing programs. By developing their confidence and team skills, we help people meet life’s challenges with determination and optimism.

OUR PROGRAMS

We are proud to have been offering our sailing programs for over 25 years

We provide free sailing and training programs for disabled and disadvantaged people and their carers. Our programs use sailing as a tool to build confidence, self-esteem and new relationships. Through sailing, we start to forget about what we can't do and focus on what we can do. 

Please be advised we have suspended our programs until further notice as a precautionary measure. If you have any questions, please call our office at 0421 725 170.

SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME

We have taken over 64,000 disabled and disadvantaged people sailing

HIGHLIGHTS FROM OUR REGATTA

In its fourth edition this year, our regatta was one of the biggest that we've held, with 25 boats of corporates competing against each other on a picturesque Sydney Harbour. Take a look at this highlights video. A big thank you to HeyYa TV for providing us with their video and photography services pro bono, and a thank you to our Patron, Malcolm Turnbull for joining us.
