Sailability Dobroyd

Do you enjoy being out on the water!   Sailability Dobroyd are looking for volunteers and participants!

Sailability Dobroyd sails from Rodd Point, every second Sunday from September to May. We cater for people with disabilities and their families and have a friendly and caring atmosphere
We operate in a safe environment and sail in specially designed, stable and unsinkable Hansa dinghies. Sailors don’t need to move about the boat once on board. 

Sailability is entirely run by volunteers. 

We need volunteers to do the things that our disabled members cannot do by themselves.  
We value any time that you can give us and we hope that your experiences with us give you something valuable in return. 

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. We can train you.
  • Drive or crew the support boat. We can train you.
  • 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!

We can be found at the Dobroyd Aquatic Club, Rodd Point (via Henley Marine Drive), Five Dock.  People of all ages and abilities are welcome at Sailability Dobroyd. 
You are encouraged to sail to the best of your ability, or you can just relax and enjoy the ride. We are wheelchair accessible, with hoists and safety slings available.

Come along and see us!

Volunteer Recognition Cocktail Party

Volunteer Network and Burwood Council held a Volunteer Recognition Cocktail Party on Thursday 23 November to thank the volunteers of the Inner West who have given their time, energy, experience, expertise and financial commitment throughout the year. 

The event was held at Woodstock Community Centre, it was a great success with around 90 volunteers attending.   It was a great opportunity for volunteers to meet, mingle and enjoy the delicious food and drink.

The guest speaker was Paula Duncan; Paula has worked extensively on stage, film and television and has been a household name throughout Australia for over half of her life, not only as an actress, but as one of Australia's most loved personalities.  Paula spoke about her passions and the community work she is involved in.
