SWD is a not-for-profit organisation. We are Creators of Optimism.
We encourage people with a disability or those in difficult circumstances to see things in a new way.
By showing what's possible, we challenge society’s perception of those facing disability or disadvantage.
Join SWD and become a Creator of Optimism.
If you want to come sailing read about our sailing programs. For those affected by disadvantage or disability, sailing is free.
Next week, Kayle and a crew of SWD volunteers are heading north to Queensland and northern NSW to run Winds of Joy for over 500 children with disabilities over the next two months. Winds of Joy gives children and youth with disabilities, who may otherwise never experience the thrill of sailing, the opportunity to spend a day aboard 54-foot Sydney-Hobart racing yacht, Kayle.
