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.
The Foundation was initially planning to launch in September 2021, however COVID restrictions have postponed this plan for a couple of months. Operations will initially start with crew training in preparation for commencing programs in term 1, 2022.
We are seeking local and mutually beneficial community partnerships, and collaborations to assist the program. If you or someone you know would like to support, please contact us here.
We are in the process of purchasing this Sydney 40 (currently named Business As Usual) for the the Newcastle program.
