Sailors with disABILITIES & faceboat News July 2014
New faceboat online community

So many people love the faceboat project and wanted to tell the story behind their photo that we decided to add a new element to faceboat - an online community.

Just like our on-water community, our faceboat online community is a supportive, inclusive place where members can share stories and information.

On the new website you can... upload stories and blogs, comment on stories and blogs, make friends and interact with fellow members

A couple of the latest stories include David Pescud's nomination for Pride of Australia and Henri Lloyd's generous donation of wet weather gear to assist Brett Whiteley as he works hard towards his goal of being part of the Sydney to Hobart team.

A number of inspirational SWD members and supporters who have already shared their stories with us - hover over their image on the home page to read the stories.

Come and see us at SIBS

The Sailors with disABILITIES team and our orange faceboat Moksha will be at the Sydney International Boat Show (SIBS) from 31st July to 4th August.

SIBS is a great day out and you can enjoy the opportunity to chat to our team about how Sailors with disABILITIES creates change.

Team Windcraft's raffle in support of SWD is well and truly underway - tickets are selling steadily. The prize is a Hanse 345 yacht ready to sail away with 12 months Club Marine insurance.

You'll be able to buy raffle tickets the the boat show unless they are sold prior. You can secure your entry today if you buy a ticket online here

Another Successful Winds of Change Program

Congratulations to the John Berne School for successfully completing the Winds of Change Program.

Our youth Program opens a whole new world of challenge, skill development and discovery for young people who have disengaged from learning.

By the end of the course they are "responsible" for taking the yacht out as a team and sailing her down the harbour.

Lots of Good Times on the Water

Our new Saturday Social Sailing program kicks off this month. If you have a disability and are interested in meeting new friends and learning new skills - come along! We'd love to share a great day on the water with you. Please email to book your place.

Carers days are now on the calendar for October. These days are a chance for the amazing Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Guardians, Brothers, Sisters, friends and others who care for people with disability to take a bit of time out for themselves.

New Try Sail dates are also available for schools and organisations.
