South of Perth Yacht Club has teamed up with Guy Mewburn and his non-for-profit Sailing On to support the mental health of our Veterans.  We are proud to say that Guy’s efforts have been noticed and recognised by the official Army publication, which featured a story about Guy and Sailing on:

“Retired major Guy Mewburn is helping former and current Defence force personnel improve their mental health by teaching them to fix boats and sail. Shocked by the high suicide rate among Defence force veterans, Mr. Mewburn founded the not-for-profit Sailing On, which gets them bonding through teamwork and sailing education.
“I got together with a bunch of like-minded mates and we formed Sailing On WA Inc. to help improve mental health.” Mr. Newburn said. Formed last year, Sailing On has set up base at South of Perth Yacht Club in Applecross, where Mr. Mewburn is a member and will provide front-line mental health courses through Open Arms.
