A weekly sailing program run by the Cairns Yacht Club (CYC) is putting the wind back in the sails of local people with a disability.
The CYC Sailors with a Disability Program runs each Tuesday and Thursday at the Marlin Marina, weather permitting.

Skippers Aaron Dee, Andy Murray and Gordon Raleigh manage the two dinghies and safety boat used in the program.
