September 2015 Volunteers - Branch Dobroyd
How you can help our sailors

Sailability is entirely run by volunteers. We need volunteers to do the things that our disabled members cannot do by themselves. We operate in a safe environment and give our sailors confidence in our specially designed, stable and unsinkable Access dinghies. We value your time and we hope that your experiences with us give you something valuable in return. You do not have to be at sailing all day. We will be pleased to see you even if you can only spare a couple of hours. Our summer season sailing days are on every second Sunday from September to May, with a break over Christmas. Please see the Events calendar. Sunday volunteers are needed between 10:00 and 15:30 each sailing day. Things you can do for us: • Rig and launch the boats • Fit safety jackets • Help our members in and out of boats • Fit slings and operate the hoist • Help our members to sail to the best of their ability • Drive the support boat – DAC runs training courses • Crew the support boat and communicate with the pontoon • Sign up new members and sign on volunteers • Schedule the crews of the dinghies and the support boat • Run the BBQ and organise the provisions And last, but not least, Socialise and have Fun!

March 2015 Volunteers - Branch Pittwater
Volunteering with SAILABILITY PITTWATER

As a volunteer you are joining Pittwater Branch of Sailability NSW Inc, which has 28 branches throughout the State. You can find out more about them and the world scene at, www.sailability.org. At Sailability Pittwater we aim to provide a sailing experience for people of all ages and abilities, through recreational sailing. Those who wish to sail competotivly will be directed to our sister branch Sailability Crystal Bay, out of RPAYC, Newport. Sailability cannot function without a dedicated and skilled group of volunteers, as we are fully self- funded, not for profit organisation. It is some of the most satisfying volunteering work around, especially if you enjoy the outdoors. Our sailors come from many different areas, including Cerebral Palsy Alliance, various Care Centres , Special Schools , Adult Day Programs or those living independently. There are many benefits that come out of volunteering with Sailability Pittwater, just to name a few. • Acknowledgement of your valued contribution by sailors, members of the committee, and Sailability Pittwater. • To assist with promoting a positive image of people with a disability in the community. • To pursue your interest in assisting people with a disability and assist them to achieve “freedom on the water regardless of ability” • To meet new people and learn new skills. • To be part of a great program, and to be outdoors. We operate from September to May each year with about 4 weeks break in Dec / Jan when people are very busy. There are 2 days each fortnight that we sail at Rowland Reserve, Wednesdays from 9am till 2pm and Saturdays 9am till 2pm. Light refreshments are provided but not lunch. Look at our program dates and come down and have a look, you don’t need to be a sailor, just a willingness to help others, particularly those with a disability.
