Middle Harbour 16' Skiff Sailing Club Secures Funding for A New Rescue Boat
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Speaker I congratulate Middle Harbour 16' Skiff Sailing Club for their success in receiving funding in the 2021 Community Building Partnership grants program. This funding will allow the club to purchase a new rescue boat to support the increase in both junior and senior sailors. Middle Harbour 16' Skiff Sailing Club is a club that thrives on community and participation. The club has a rich history and has had members sailing for over 100 years. Sailing is such a special part of our community here in the North Shore, especially with the Middle Harbour 16' Skiff Sailing Club positioned right on the shore of Sydney Harbour, attracting both experienced and rookie sailors to take part in skiff sailing. Congratulations to President Peter Tinworth and the club for their successful application. The well-deserved funding through CBP2021 will directly benefit the safety of members. It is excellent to see a large increase in participation in the Club's sailing program following the more challenging times of COVID-19.
