Stellar Sailing Cup success

Stellar Sailing Cup success

QLD

The 6th annual Brisbane Charity Sailing Cup, held on Friday 17 May, was a tremendous success raising $70k net for at-risk and homeless young people. The event, sponsored by Built, saw 42 yachts and over 400 corporate attendees enjoy a stellar Queensland day, sailing in and around Moreton Bay. 

The money raised from this event, will go directly into building PIF House GLASS. The Foundation has received a Development Application from the Brisbane City Council to refurbish an existing house and construct 3 x 2 bedroom and 3 x 1 bedroom purpose built units on a parcel of land at Clayfield. Upon completion, the facility will be operated by our charity partner, Brisbane Youth Service and will provide a total of 12 bedrooms.  

The Foundation would like to thank the yacht owners and skippers from the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron (RQYS) and surrounds, for very kindly donating their yachts and time to this event. Special shout out to Ian Richardson, from Construction People, who worked as the conduit between the skippers and yacht owners and the Foundation to coordinate the donation of all the yachts that took part on the day.  

Congratulations to all of our winners on the day –  

First Place was taken by Construction People + FACTION onboard Bazinga! 

Second Place was taken by DEXUS III onboard Out of the Blue.  

Third Place was taken by Mirvac Office Developments onboard Ragtime. 

Best dressed team was won by FDC Construction & Fitout. 

Events like this are not possible without the support of sponsors and supporters. The Foundation extends a special thank you Christian Adamson and the team at Built, for sponsoring the event for the third year in a row.  

Special thank you also to our event host, RQYS, and our event supporter Professional Caliber Security.  

A final shout out to the team of volunteers who gave up their day to assist with the delivery of the event. Special thanks to Eliza, Avril, Kat, Nathan, Owen, Sarah, Kobus, Cass, Karen, Rob, Jess, Aleesha, Luke, Libby and Penny!
