The trip to Biloela to support getting a branch of Sailability off the ground, and on to the water, was very successful.

Sailability Capricornia was represented by Justin and Jenny, Bob, Ken, Conrad and Steve. Don Morris from Bilo had gathered a good crowd of potential volunteers and sailors on the banks of the Callide Dam with the picturesque power station in the background. The dam was 75% full so plenty of deep water. Much larger than the Causeway Lake and the wind blew. Perfect.

After a delightful lunch we had a quick chat about Sailability with plenty of questions from the Biloela mob. We then launched the red and green 303s and were kept busy taking 13 sailors for their first sailing experience. A couple of sailors had travelled over 2 hours to get there.

And thanks to Jenny for the excellent photos.
