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.
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.
We have taken over 50,000 disabled and disadvantaged people sailing
Thanks to significant financial and organisational support by a Newcastle-based private benefactor, MWF is excited to announce that we are establishing a permanent program base in Newcastle.
The Newcastle program will have its own dedicated yacht (see below) berthed at Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club, and an existing volunteer base will be substantially expanded to allow program growth.
Welcome aboard Wendy!
Wendy Tuck made history in 2018 when she became the first female skipper to win the Clipper Around the World race and the first female skipper to win ANY around the world yacht race!
We’re proud to announce that Wendy has joined MWF as our new Sailing Operations Manager.
