Community Programs

Belmont 16s exists for its members and the community. 


We are the major support of Sailability, a not-for-profit organisation that allows people with physical and intellectual disabilities to enjoy the sport of sailing. Sailability operates adjacent to the Club four days per week for 48 weeks of the year and provides a sense of achievement, satisfaction and respite to the many people who use this valuable and unique service. Belmont 16s Sailing Club has supported the local chapter of Sailability for the past 27 years, providing the necessary facilities and funding for this community program that is run solely by volunteers. Contact details for Sailability Belmont representative is Chris Syme 0431 314 452.

Free CPR training

Hunter Heart Safe will be offering their hands only CPR training to members of the local community in FREE sessions held at Belmont 16s over the coming months. Each year around 30,000 Australians suffer a sudden cardiac arrest, but only 10% survive.

Hunter Heart Safe’s Coordinator, Dr Mark Miller, a local Emergency Medicine Specialist, says that this statistic improves significantly with early bystander CPR and defibrillation.

In these sessions, you will learn how to recognise when someone is in cardiac arrest, how to perform hands only CPR, how to use an AED, and the critical importance of bystander response to improve outcomes.
