Working Bee held last Saturday

Thank you very much to our large band of volunteers who worked tirelessly last Saturday to clean and transform our facilities in readiness for the construction of our site into Festival of Sails mode. Over 60 members and friends joined in the many tasks to set up the festival. Thankyou!!!!
Seeking volunteers to crew on Fridays

We are seeking sailors and mentors who are available on a Friday morning and/or afternoons to join us on Wot Eva, our TP52 yacht to give people with a disability a wonderful sailing experience. We envisage forming a pool of volunteers to help spread the load amongst our current team of volunteers and to also ensure the boat is on the water every week during school terms. If you are interested, but don’t want to sail every week that is fine too. You may only wish to sail with us once a fortnight or once a month.
