Through 'Winds of Joy' we start to create change.
It's the first step for many on the journey towards accepting their circumstances and believing they can achieve more.
We give disabled and disadvantaged kids and adults the chance to 'try sailing'.
All in a safe, non-comparative environment.
SWD's Winds of Change Program opens a whole new world of challenge, skill development and discovery for young people who have disengaged from learning.
We go beyond the traditional classroom and didactic teaching...
... instead, offering interactive and engaged learning through the medium of sailing.
During July and August each year we head North, offering harbour sailing, ocean racing, coastal training programs and youth and school programs to Northern NSW.
