Project Service to Others 2020: a $4000 cheque from RTOERO District 15 was presented to Burlington Able Sail (BAS) on Dec. 13, 2020.

Jeannie Woodcroft, D15 Member and BAS Volunteer, presented David Groves (right), President of BAS, and Jim Casey (centre), BAS Operations Director, with the cheque. The money will provide for the purchase of new sails for the 3 Martin 16 sailboats.
The BAS program uses "the Martin 16 sailboat, which is equipped to cater to physically/cognitively challenged people of all ages. The boats are extremely stable and can be sailed with either a companion instructor in the stern seat or solo by individual sailors who have attained enough experience to go it alone."
