Journeys : Apr May 2012
On a cool December morning in late 2011, Hobart’s Lindisfarne Bay was bathed in a sea of colour as a fleet of brand-new, family-built sailing dinghies hit the water for the first time. A remarkable community building project had come to fruition. Hobart’s Lindisfar ne Sailing Club has long been at the forefront of innovative programs aimed at getting families on the water in sailing dinghies. The club’s most recent project is aimed at replenishing static club membership with a band of enthusiastic new families, equipped with a boat that they built themselves under the watchful supervision of club members, who were keen to both pass on their love of small boats and to see families working pur posefully together to accomplish a goal. The program was the brainchild of club stalwarts, father and son Des and Brett Clark, and club Commodore Matt Westland. With help from plenty of other enthusiastic members, a plan was hatched during the winter of 2011. The seeds for this innovation probably began with the realisation that it was parents who needed to be involved if their Firebugs on the loose!
