Buoyed Up in Canberra!

The Buoyed Up Fundraiser was a fantastic event at the Canberra Yacht Club this week with guest speaker Jimmy Spithill.
For me personally, it was humbling to be back at one of my home Yacht Clubs and help with the work that they are doing to make positive change through the sport of sailing.
Buoyed Up with Tackers, is an initiative which assists vulnerable, at-risk children aged 7-12 years to participate in the Tackers Junior Sailing program as a way to build confidence, self-esteem and engage in an active lifestyle.

More information in this video here with Buoyed Up patron Malcolm Page.

We also had a Harken “Grind Off” competition on the night (quick interview with Jimmy Spithill at the end) and I caught up with “Pillow”, Matt Owen, the CEO of the Canberra Yacht Club on the work of the Buoyed Up Program.
