Challenge Sailing

The other side Bill

Challenge sailing provides an on water experience for those with special needs within the community.

Challenge Sailing operates weekly at 9am on Thursday mornings, they use purpose designed and built access dinghies, these access dinghies are used by many similar organisations throughout Australia as they are very safe and comfortable. Challenge sailing caters to local special schools and local disability services. The price of a sailing session (45mins – 1hour) is simply a $5 donation.

Challenge sailing sessions are conducted by volunteers who are dedicated and are very experienced in what they do. The emphasis is on safety and fun and they work closely with carers to ensure any special requirements are met.

If you would like any more information on Challenge sailing, please phone Eliza on 3203 5188 or email sports@mbbc.org.au.
