On the Water

Of course what we all want to do at the Living Boat Trust is get ‘on the water’ in our boats, and we do it all the time.

  • On a casual basis members take out our Grebe dinghies for a row or a sail around Egg Island or down the river.
  • The ‘Women on the Water (WOW)’  have an organised program and traditionally meet to go rowing on Friday mornings.
  • There are other groups that go out just about every day of the week – see the booking calendar for a list.
  • There are expeditions and regattas and excursions organised on a regular basis – watch the news column.
  • The ‘big daddy’ for getting on the water is ‘Tawe Nunnugah

And then there is our schools ‘On the Water’ program: see the Schools Program

Over several years the Living Boat Trust, in cooperation with local schools, has run a program to introduce students to basic boating skills.  This has included

  • preparation and planning
  • rigging
  • ropework
  • rowing techniques
  • sailing techniques and manoeuvres
  • rescue procedures and drills
  • launching and docking
  • sailing theory and background
  • observing and understanding winds, tides and currents

We plan to continue this program into the future.  If your school wishes to be involved please contact the LBT secretary: sec@lbt.org.au
