Winds of Joy


This Program operates on weekdays from Rushcutters Bay in Sydney, Newcastle, and Docklands in Melbourne. Winds of Joy offers groups of children and young people with disabilities the empowering opportunity to try sailing on a 50 ft yacht. The yachts have been modified for disability access and can accommodate wheelchairs. Sessions are morning and afternoon for two hours on the water.

The program is supported by our skilled volunteers, many of whom also have a disability so act as role models and mentors for the participants.
