Buoyed Up Program Charity Gala Dinner  2019
The CYC Buoyed Up program continues to change the lives of at risk and vulnerable young people. Last 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.
