Help needed with Sailability Shelter
Sailability is a non for profit volunteer-based organsation and through the activity of sailing enriches the lives of people of all abilities. The CYC is aiming to raise money for a shelter, which is the on-land component of the' Inclusive Sailing 'project at the Canberra Yacht Club. The on water jetty aspect of the project is being funded by the National Capital Authority but the shelter component is currently unfunded. The shelter will be an area for disabled sailors and their carers to assemble before and after they go sailing. It will also be used for safety briefings and an area for the sailors, carers and Sailability volunteers to view the activities on the water. If you would like to help provide this shelter, please make a tax deductable donation - click here
Powerboat Permits for Trailable Yachts?
The Water Police have informed the CYC that they will be checking that all trailable boats that use an auxiliary outboard motor have a current National Capital Authority powerboat permit. The permit is easy to get and requires a quick Water Police safety check. Also a reminder that a licence is required when operating a powered boat at all times on Lake Burley Griffin. Get more information here.
