Business Profile

Sailors with disABILITIES (SWD) is an Australian not-for-profit organisation committed to changing the way people with a disability see themselves. Through spending time on the water and learning sailing skills, disadvantaged and disabled children and adults start to concentrate on what they can do... and forget about what they can't.

This new self-belief has a ripple effect out into their daily life as participants start to realise they don't need to be contained by a disability.

SWD also change perceptions and attitudes towards the disabled. By encouraging the public to concentrate on a person's strengths rather than their weaknesses SWD help people to see beyond the disability and connect with and embrace the golden core of a person.

A number of those who sail with SWD learn to race yachts competitively. Some even complete the notorious Rolex Sydney to Hobart yacht race. The sense of pride in reaching such a sporting pinnacle spreads on into participant's day to day life as they start to believe in themselves more and more.
