Sailors with disABILITIES

Crowdfunding for Wright of Passage Program




HERE IS WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP!


$23,000 to buy new sails, (Wright of Passage Mercator sails are at least 20 years old)

$31,000 to re-deck the boat with our trainees learning shipwright skills

Below decks, the trainees will rebuild the galley, the heads and the saloon

$500 for the stove to have hot meals on sail training days

$2000 for refrigeration for essential medication water and fresh food

$3000 to buy parts and install hot water system

$150 will install a toilet door (we have a swinging curtain at the moment)

$200 - $600 to repair the main saloon floor

$600 for materials to fit a table in saloon for on board training and learning

$125 gives a trainee the capability to learn to install cabin lights (we are using torches)

$2300 to restore and rebuild the navigation station

Currently our safety gear is loaned from other boats, we need to buy our own safety gear!

$6000 for safety equipment - life raft, personal beacons

$3600 to install a dedicated satellite phone

So far, we have managed without our own tools and equipment as we borrow from our volunteers

$10 donates a tool to the boat’s tool kit

$45 for each winch handle that is lost overboard!

$200 will buy sea a kit for our trainees – torches, etc

We also spend money on other skills and training opportunities.

$700 for sea survival training for each new trainee

$80 for first aid training for each new trainee

For each participant it costs $30,000 for specialist support training.
