The Grant is for 'conducting come and try sail days, provide training, accreditation and purchase equipment to support sail training at Hollywell.'

The launching party Tues 9 July from 4pm to 5pm, at the Hollywell Sailing Squadron, 1 Marina Crescent, Hollywell is an opportunity to thank the Queensland Government who provided $10K to Southport Yacht Club’s Sailing Academy to increase Queenslanders participation in sport and recreation activities, as well as our Ladies Associate Committee and to SYC Members Ken and Noelene Tregeagle for generously donating the rest!
