Channel 7 visits Sailability Capricornia

On Nov 7 a local Channel 7 reporter and camera operator visited a Sailability Capricornia sailing day. They filmed, interviewed and had a great ride around in a support boat. Everyone was very well behaved on the day and smiled nicely for the camera.

The Sailability Tractor makes life a lot easier

20170801_120611_resizedThanks to Peter ‘Mechanical Magician’ Murphy Sailability Capricornia now has a ride-on  to help launch and retrieve boats on sailing days. Peter’s unique towbar and drawbar designs enable 2 boats to be delivered to the water’s edge at one time. Quite a sight to see the ‘Sailing boat roadtrain’ leaving the shed and heading to the lake. A huge thanks to Peter for his efforts.

Sailability Christmas Break Up

As usual our Christmas break up was very well attended. And what could be better than spending the morning eating and drinking in the shade of the trees on the banks of the lake?

It’s a hard life but someone has to do it.

“Bob’s Boat” hits the water

We now have two trimarans sailing on the Causeway Lake. The new Hobie has been named “Bob’s Boat” in memory of Bob Auld who passed away last year.

Funding for the boat came from donations in Bob’s memory with the balance made up by Ros. A fitting memorial to one of our most stalwart supporters.
