Parking Update for Sailors - important changes
The Canberra Southern Cross Club has implemented paid parking to reduce unauthorised use of the car park area. We have worked closely with them on planning the change to ensure continued access for sailors.
Here is a summary of how it will work - please read!

Sailability at the CYC
The Canberra Yacht Club offers Sailability, an international program to assist people of all-abilities to get into sailing. This is by providing an additional level of support, an established network of volunteers, and resources to assist participants. Equipment is provided to assist those with limited mobility to get into and out of boats, with modified docking areas that are accessible and affordable options to participate. Different types of boats are provided including the Hansa Class that are easy to sail. If you have a disability and wish to experience “Freedom on the Water”, you are especially welcome typically Sunday morning. Find out more and Book Online here.
