On Friday 21 November, Newhaven Yacht Squadron hosted a Sailability day with a difference.  Disability support groups from Bass Coast & South Gippsland were invited to spend a day on the water with the club.

A large number of keen volunteers were on hand to take people from Bass Coast & South Gippsland Specialist Schools, Yooralla First Base & Interchange Gippsland out for a leisurely cruise on Westernport Bay.

GippSport’s Access for All Abilities program will be working with Newhaven to set this up as a sustainable Sailability program.  The program will alternate between Keelboats & Hansa Dingy’s providing participants with both big boat & dingy sailing.
