Sailors with disABILITIES - Making Waves Regatta
Sailors with disABILITIES (SWD) will hold its inaugural Making Waves Regatta on Friday, March 10, in partnership with the CYCA.
Sailing on Sydney Harbour, over 20 boats will race in the Regatta and all funds raised will support children with disability and those who face adversity. The more funds SWD raises through this foundational event, the more children can come on board SWD’s specially adapted boats for life-changing sailing experiences. Thank you for your support!
