LINDSAY AND MARIA DALMON. ROYAL REHAB ACHIEVEMENT AWARD – 2018.

David Wormleaton together with Laurie and Malcolm Murray attended at the Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club on the evening of Friday 4th May to be present at the Ryde Foundation Awards Night. The purpose of our attendance was the presentation to Lindsay and Maria of the Royal Rehab Achievement Award. The dinner was held in a large room with 186 persons attending including the anticipated guests and celebrities. The evening was superbly conducted, and kept the evening moving, by the Master of Ceremonies, Steve Robilliard. Twelve Monthly Sports Stars were presented during the evening with their Awards and a short interview was carried out by Steve with an amazing variety of questions to the young recipients. Next came the Special Presentations. Lindsay and Maria were presented with their Royal Rehab Achievement Award by Louise Sauvage to great acclamation – especially from our table. Much photographing ensued and a message of thanks was read out for Maria. Maria is selling her and Lindsay’s lifetime story book for the Princely sum of $10 and all proceeds will be donated by Maria and Lindsay to Sailability Pittwater – a good number were sold on the evening. All in all a great evening and a great tribute to Lindsay and Maria who have done so much on many levels to promote the work of the Royal Rehab Society and at the same time they sincerely thank Sailability Pittwater Volunteers for the input into their lives through sailing.

1 PITTWATER LIFE MAGAZINE SEPT 2016

This year Sailability Pittwater celebrates 20 years of “Freedom on the Water” in our local area. After initially trying Narrabeen Lagoon, too shallow, and BYRA, low tide issues, we settled on Rowland Reserve Bayview, our current home. With lots of support from local groups and businesses, and especially Pittwater Council, we have excellent facilities including a storage shed in the Council compound. More recently Pittwater RSL, through their Club Grants program, have allowed us to upgrade our fleet of specially designed Hansa 303 dinghies. Sailability is a totally Volunteer run program, providing sailing for people with a disability of all ages and abilities. Many of our volunteers have enjoyed sailing for many years and want to give back to the community and share this with people with a disability. In celebrating 20 years, we especially applauded Lindsay and Maria Dalmon, an inspiring couple living with Cerebral Palsy who have been sailing with us from the very start. Sailability has allowed Lindsay & Maria to sail competitively at all levels including regattas in France, Greece and Japan, winning many trophies along the way, Lindsay being voted the Disabled Sailor of the Year in 2003. Nowadays they enjoy sailing a pair of Access 2.3 Electric dinghies, where they can control the rudder and mainsheet with a joystick . Another great success story is Alyse Saxby, who started sailing with a school group 10 years ago and has now achieved 1 Silver and 2 Gold medals at Special Olympics. She now sails high performance dinghies with Sailability Crystal Bay at PRAYC Newport. For more information on Sailability go to www.sailabilitynsw.org/pittwater Continue...


1 Fleet Update September 2016

at the end of 2015 we replaced 2 of our older Access 303s with new models, thanks to the generosity of the St George Foundation, and accumulated funds from Pittwater and Avalon RSL Club Grants programs. One we named St George with its red deck and sails, while the other is named Little Digger and has blue deck and sails. Along with our two electric 2.3 singles and two Access Breezes, we have four 303s all in very good condition. Continue...
