WhatÔÇÖs been happening at Sailability Capricornia?┬á We have had our ups and downs with the weather but on the whole it has been not too bad.┬á We are looking forward to the lovely winter months ahead.

Volunteer numbers have been constant and we thank our wonderful crew who come along to make things ready for the sailors when they arrive.

Sailor numbers have been low so far this year and we need to concentrate our efforts into spreading the word as wide as we can to encourage new clients to join our sail days.

Fundraising is ongoing and we had a successful raffle in conjunction with our ÔÇ£Getting to Know SailabilityÔÇØ day at Woolies ┬áin Yeppoon.┬á Thanks to the donors of our raffle prizes, Sailing Capricornia with Grace, Beaches Restaurant, Quality Street Hair Salon.

We also thank the Capricornia Cruising Yacht Club for their generous donation ÔÇô the proceeds of their open day held in March.┬á Also for their support in allowing us to store our boats, trailer and pontoon in their yards.

We have been booked for a BBQ day at Bunnings on Friday 25th May.  This is a good opportunity to help with funding for operating costs and we encourage our supporters to volunteer to help on the day.

Good news ÔÇô The Iwasaki Foundation has approved our application┬á for a grant to fund a lifting winch.┬á This can be used on the pontoon to assist clients into the dinghies.┬á We thank them for their ongoing support.

See you on the water.

Here we are well into 2012 already.
