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.
We need you! Sailors With disABILITIES will be back in Hobart in 2017 running Winds of Joy programs from 15th-28th February. This program offers children with disabilities and disadvantaged people an opportunity to enjoy the freedom, teamwork and adventure of sailing.
