Sailability applied for a grant from the Queensland Government, Sport and Recreation department to upgrade the amenities at Hollywell. The grant was approved and along with additional contributions from both Southport Yacht Club and Sailability the upgrade was underway.

The new Kitchen facility sees the launch of the new 'Sails Cafe' with waterfront views of the Gold Coast Broadwater.

Southport Yacht Club’s new Hollywell Amenities have already come in very useful with numerous participants in the Sailability program and the kids youth sailing.
