Yachtshare is a proud supporter of the Making Waves Foundation (MWF) and has selected this organisation as its charity of choice. Over the last few weeks, Yachtshare director Anton Prange has assisted the MWF team, volunteers and trades in preparing MWF’s yacht, The Tribe, to commence its programs on Moreton Bay.

Annually, the Making Waves Foundation provides more than 2,500 young people and adults the chance to enjoy life-changing experiences on the water.

Following months of hard work by many, The Tribe had her first sail on the bay and even completed her first WAGS race. Anton is very grateful to the expert sailors who joined the shakedown sail and the first race to ensure everything worked as it should. What a team, and what a boat!

A big shout-out to everyone that has helped get us this far. A special thanks to the crew (Todd, Greg, Mike, John, Geoff, Phil and Dave) and our test sailors Ash, Brad and Woody.

An extra special thanks to Greg Clark for his many hours sorting through the sails and inventory on the boat. Lastly, thank you to Natalie from MWF – the driving force in getting the boat out on the water and into operation.

None of this would be possible without the support of the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, Bartons Motor Group, David Redfern, Sandy Grant, Karen Baldwin, Peter Lewis, Paul and Nelly Bolton, Rope Solutions Rigging Services, AW Marine, Electech Industries, Moreton Bay Signs, International Paints, Survitec, and countless volunteers, donors, trades and supporters that have got behind this fantastic club initiative.

Congratulations to everyone involved!
