CYCA and Sailors with disAbilities Announce Partnership

SWD Founder David Pescud and CYCA Commodore John Cameron formalising the partnership between the two organisations.

Sailors with disABILITIES is delighted to share that the Cruising Yacht Club Of Australia and Sailors with disABILITIES have formalised a partnership:

"The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA) is pleased to announce Sailors with disAbilities (SWD) has been officially endorsed as a preferred charity of the Club.

While the CYCA and SWD have had an informal relationship of support for many years, the official partnership provides SWD with guaranteed resources and assistance which will give stronger foundations to its programs and planning.

The partnership sees SWD acknowledged as a preferred charity of the CYCA, in addition to the CYCA SOLAS Trusts, with the club assisting SWD with its major fundraising campaign, in addition to race management and promotional support for the Sailors with disAbilities Charity Regatta.

CYCA Commodore John Cameron said while the partnership with SWD was part of the Club’s commitment to support sailing charities, the existing relationship with SWD had already demonstrated the value of supporting a program which changed lives."

We will share all related events in coming months, including a Charity Regatta managed by the CYCA which will help fundraise for SWD's core sailing programs.

SWD wishes to thank everyone at the CYCA and within SWD who worked together to create this partnership. We look forward to getting to know our CYCA partners and growing this unique initiative.
