Making Waves Foundation aims 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 55,000 disabled and disadvantaged people sailing
Well, what a busy and rewarding 6 months it’s been since Wendy joined Making Waves!
Wendy has been out and about, meeting and training volunteers, as well as skippering Winds of Joy and racing programmes – which she loves. Whilst based in Sydney most of the time, these activities have also taken her onto the waterways of our ports in Newcastle and Melbourne.
