Offshore Yachting : February March 2009
Coach Alex Ward with students and teacher from Quakers Hill High School. Freedman Foundation participants and coaches. Freedman Foundation sailing program continues to grow N ow in its seventh year of introducing high schoolers to the sport of sailing, the Freedman Foundation continues to grow, recently adding its 14th participant with the enrolment of Glenwood High. The Freedman Foundation was founded to give school students who would not otherwise to experience sailing the opportunity to learn the sport. Squad members of the CYCA’s own Youth Sailing Academy (YSA) have been encouraged to get involved with the program in coaching and mentoring roles. Of special note were Tom Barker, James Francis, Will Mackenzie, Karen Muller, Sean O’Rourke, Amanda Scivenor and Alex Ward, who the CYCA has commended for their efforts in the four-day sailing programs. CYCA members also responded overwhelmingly to the request to take students into their crew during the twilight races in late 2008. This gave the students an introduction to CYCA and familiarised them with sailing on a keel boat, giving them some preparation fo steppingdown onto the Elliot 6s for some more hands-on theory and sail training. The CYCA has thanked the two head coaches of the Freedman Foundation, Larry Cargill and Dayne Sharp, who introduced the students to the sport of sailing.
