Sailors with disABILITIES

Winds of Joy in Melbourne

The sun shone on Melbourne on February 27 when students and teachers from Sunshine and Springvale Park Special Developmental Schools sailed in a Winds Of Joy Program in Melbourne. The students got stuck into winching and steering and gaining a whole lot of confidence from being part of a team sailing on a large yacht on the Yarra.

SWD's Melbourne volunteers lead and manage the sailing program on board Ninety Seven in Melbourne. You're welcome to come along to an orientation session and find out about volunteering in Melbourne or anywhere else SWD runs programs, including Sydney, Hobart in early 2018 and and Queensland in the middle of the year, every year. 

Head over to the Facebook post to see all the photos from this experience. Here are two images from the day.
