Graham Oborn of the Soldiers Point Marina Sailing School told News Of The Area, “We are very fortunate to have an anonymous donor from Melbourne making available two scholarships for children aged between 8-11 to learn how to sail.”

He believes that the scholarships will be awarded to children whose families may not be able to afford to pay for sporting lessons for their children.

The scholarships were offered after the Melbourne based families children participated in learning to sail programs while staying in the Bay.

Students at the Soldiers Point Marina Sailing School start out learning to sail on the Optimus sailing dinghy.

Bill Brill whose daughter Emily Brill is about to commence sailing lessons at the school told News Of The Area, “Emily has a brother and sister who have done the program before and Graham was amazing, the children developed confidence through the program.”

The lessons are undertaken from the sheltered beach at Soldiers Point Marina and anyone interested in applying for the scholarships should contact Carmen Holden at the Marina for further information.
