Two 303’s are heading to the warm, crystal blue waters of Tahiti in French Polynesia.

Raiatea Yacht Club

With the assistance of Sailing for Everyone Foundation, recently Raiatea Yacht Club in French Polynesia (Tahiti) applied for, and received funding from the Australian Government to purchase 2 x 303 Wide Hansa boats for a new learn to sail programme.

“The Australian Sports Outreach Program (ASOP) is an Australian Government program that uses sport/physical activity programs to address broader development priorities and community issues such as promoting social inclusion and cohesion, fostering healthy behaviours, and providing education and/or leadership opportunities for young men and women. The ASOP is funded by the Australian Government and managed by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) with assistance from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).”

Within the next few weeks the 2 x 303’s will be shipped in a large cargo crate to Papeete Port.
