Just 2 days after a successful outing with the caregivers and residents of Villa Francis, CSC returned to playing host to the wonderful families from Rainbow Centre. Taking place on 20th October with a total of 68 participants, it was our largest Joy Sail to date!
The Rainbow Centre is a social service organisation in Singapore. It operates three special education schools Margaret Drive School, Yishun Park School and a third one at Woodlands, for infants, children and youths with special needs like autism, intellectual disability, developmental delay, and multiple disabilities. For this round, we had the privilege and opportunity to bring 3 wheelchair-bound students out sailing as well, a first for this programme!
The 68 beneficiaries departed for a morning sail along the north-eastern rim of Singapore, under the careful steersmanship of 10 CSC boat owners/skippers who kindly lent their support for the event. We were blessed with good weather and a gentle breeze – the perfect environment for an introduction to sailing! It was great to see Members & Participants interacting while enjoying a leisurely morning cruise together. All smiles upon disembarking, everyone was treated to some food and refreshments to complete a wonderful day out.
Here’s a FB link to a heartwarming write-up from one of the participants!
Changi Sailing Club is always excited to partner with Rainbow Centre to conduct these Experiential Joy Sails, as part of our Community Outreach Programme. We’re looking forward to the next one in 2020!
