Buoyed Up Program Charity Gala Dinner 2019
The CYC Buoyed Up program continues to change the lives of at risk and vulnerable young
people. This season another 140 primary school students were able
to participate. Buoyed Up receives no local or federal funding, and consequently its
ongoing success depends heavily on private donations and fundraising. The 2019 Buoyed Up
Fundraising Dinner will be held on Wednesday 23rd October. We are very pleased to announce that Lisa Blair, the
inspirational and record-breaking sailor, will be the guest speaker on the
night. Lisa has had an incredible sailing career, and many of you will remember
her 2017 attempt to sail solo and unassisted around Antarctica. 72 days into
this attempt she was dis-masted, and the story of how she survived, and saved
her yacht, will be incredible to hear. Tickets will be available soon.
Sailability at the CYC The Canberra Yacht Club offers Sailability, an international program to assist people of all-abilities to get into sailing. This is by providing an additional level of
support, an established network of volunteers, and resources to assist participants. Equipment is provided to assist those with limited mobility to get into and out of boats, with modified docking areas that are accessible and affordable options to participate. Different types of boats are provided including the Hansa Class that are easy to sail. If you have a disability and wish to experience “Freedom on the Water”, you are especially welcome typically Sunday morning. Find out more and Book Online here.
