Sailors with disABILITIES

About SWD

SWD is a not-for-profit organisation. We are Creators of Optimism.

We encourage people with a disability or those in difficult circumstances to see things in a new way.

By showing what's possible, we challenge society’s perception of those facing disability or disadvantage.

Fundraising Appeal Thank You!

We wish to thank everyone who donated to our appeal to fix Kayle's keel. All donations, large and small, contributed to an excellent outcome for SWD and will mean we can run programs for children again as soon as possible and, hopefully, join the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Race at the end of 2017.
