On behalf of the children who will experience the fun and excitement of sailing on 'Sea Pearl', Whitsunday Sailing Club would like to thank Dinah Dudney and Wal Reintals of Monte Bello Pearls for their generous donation.

Ms Dudney and Mr Reintals are passionate about the sea in a way which is rare in the hustle and bustle of business today.  It was their desire to share that passion that inspired them to donate a brand new boat to the Whitsunday Sailing Club’s Off the Beach Fleet.

Ms Dudney, who comes from a family of seafarers, says a connection with the sea and sailing at an early age can contribute to the independent and free spirited nature of a person.

“Wal and I hope that giving this little boat named the 'Sea Pearl' to the Whitsunday Sailing Club will make a difference to the lives of many by introducing them to the freedom and power of the wind and waves." 

“Hopefully sharing our passion will encourage more parents to get their kids involved in sailing,” Ms Dudney said.

Whitsunday Sailing Club invites children to sail on Sea Pearl and to join the Off-Beach Learn to Sail Program.
