The Alfred's is proud to be supporting the Firefighters Family Sailing Day with Above and Beyond Boating. The Club is a hub for the RFS Firefighter Family Day on Sunday 15 March 2020.
Across Australia our dedicated fire fighters are stretched to the limit with the terrible bushfire season. They are working tirelessly to keep our homes, friends, family, wilderness and wildlife safe, often at a huge cost to themselves and their family.
The Firefighter family day on the water initiative was created by Above and Beyond Boating to provide a way for the boating community to give back to the men and women who are battling blazes across our country.
Firefighters and their family can register to attend one of the events and enjoy a day out on the water with one of the volunteer skippers who are lending their boats for the experience.
Multiple events are being planned for various dates and locations around the country. To be part of this great event register here: https://aabboating.com/firefighters/
We currently have 17 boats registered to take families out from RPAYC and 2 registered families. The maximum number of boats is limited to 30 at each hub.
All registrations and queries or changes to registrations should be fielded back through Neil and the team at Above and Beyond Boating. ABB will link the boats and families and arrange a meet and greet and introductions at the club with a planned departure at about 1000hrs.
On arrival at the club will be providing a breakfast BBQ – sausage sizzle / bacon and egg roll for the any boat owners and the families.
Boat owners are being asked to supply a light lunch for the families at their expense.
