Sailability Middle Harbour aims  to give people with disabilities the opportunity to discover first hand the wonderful experience of sailing.

We sail from the main pontoon at Middle Harbour Yacht Club on the second and last Sunday morning of each month throughout the year in purpose built Hansa 303 sailing boats each with a volunteer skipper and a (disabled) sailor.  

Sailability Middle Harbour (SMH) is one of 23 Sailibility branches in NSW under the Sailability NSW not for profit organisation.  SMH was started  in 2004 by the combined efforts of the Rotary Clubs of North Sydney and Northbridge and the support of  MHYC. The fleet commenced as only three boats donated by members of the two Rotary Clubs and has since grown to 6 boats thanks to many generous donations and support including: 

The Rotary Club of Northbridge

The Rotary Club of North Sydney

The Sir James Hardy Lodge

Middle Harbour Yacht Club

Andrew McLean

The McNally Family

See the Sailability Middle Harbour website for more details.
Northbridge Christmas Raffle - a Flash-Flood Fund Raiser
Our 2022 Christmas Raffle aims to raise much-needed funds for those in the New South Wales Central West Region who have lost their possessions and livelihood due to the recent flash flooding. 
Whilst many of us are preparing for our Christmas – many in the communities of Eugowra, Molong, Condobolin, Forbes and surrounding areas are being confronted by lost possessions, with minimal access to electricity, fuel, and many daily essentials that we normally take for granted. They need our support this Christmas!
Northbridge Rotary seeks your support with our Christmas “Fundraising” Raffle!
Great prizes are on offer that can appeal to all ages.  
Please scan the QR code or press the web link - https://tinyurl.com/Northbridge-Rotary-Xmas-Raffle

Thanks to Northbridge Plaza management, the Northbridge Rotary Club bookstall continues at Northbridge Plaza on the third Sunday of every month from 9am to 5pm.
 
Our next bookstall is on Sunday 19th February 2023.
 
The Club is selling a range of adult fiction at $4 each plus childrens’ books at $2 each; all in mint condition and sales continue grow each month.
 
Books can be purchased with cash or via credit card. As always, all of the money raised from these sales goes to a range of worthy causes. 
 
 
 
 
Many would have seen the North Shore skyline light up with the Northbridge Rotary Club’s annual community fireworks on the evening of 7 May.  And what a spectacular afternoon and evening of fun, food and entertainment it was. 
 
Well done to all those involved. 
 
The event, attended by some 4,000 people, raised close to $50,000 which the Northbridge Rotary Club will use to support a range of worthy charities and causes. 
 
Our special thanks to Willoughby  City Council and to Northbridge Plaza for what is now our 30th year of joint partnership with them for this event. Northbridge Rotary Club President, John Gidney, is photographed presenting a plaque to the Plaza management commemorating this achievement.
