Out With The Old…In With The New - We Still Need Help!


Hello again,

I know…I know…YES it’s a further appeal for you to donate to the Crowdfunding Campaign to get Duyfken back sailing again by Friday 1st December !

As you can see, the new engines are looking resplendent alongside the old ones. What you see here is the power supply to keep Duyfken sailing for the next 15-20 years.

You’ll recall from previous newsletters that it was a big financial task to cover the cost of replacing the old engines - $120,000 all up.

The good news is that we have so far raised $56,604 from 226 supporters, with a further $8,000 committed from a donor only today. So that leaves us at around $64,604 and a further $55,396 to hit the $120,000.

For those of you who have already contributed, a BIG THANK YOU from the Duyfken Board and the 100 volunteers that make Duyfken happen.

Okay then. We’re now heading for the home straight – so, once again, I ask to see whether you could put aside $50, $100 or a little more if you can! Your donation is 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE and I know that the Foundation will use your money in a far better way than the pollies in Canberra.


By helping out with some $$, you’ll be one of those wonderful supporters who’ll be able to look back at this time in 2017 and say that you Helped Get Duyfken Back Sailing Again!
