Sailing for Homeless Youth at the PIF Brisbane Charity Sailing Cup

Sailing for Homeless Youth at the PIF Brisbane Charity Sailing Cup
May 21, 2019 Ian Richardson

On Friday, the Construction People team spent the day supporting the Property Industry Foundation’s Brisbane Charity Sailing Cup.

After a drizzly start to the day, we were treated to a perfect sunny afternoon on the water, and (just quietly) ‘Bazinga’, skippered by myself alongside co-sponsor Faction Consulting, secured a win!


Friday also marked the third year that I’ve been fortunate to combine my love of sailing with a cause I deem very worthy by assisting PIF to organise the skippers and crew that were on the 42 yachts sailing on the day. And I thoroughly enjoyed getting to meet and liaise with everyone involved in the lead up to the event!

Lastly and most importantly, PIF was successful in raising $70,000 through the Brisbane Sailing Cup this year. These are much-needed funds for their House Glass project. A housing development set to begin construction in Brisbane North next year. Once completed, it will house one family and six individuals.

A big congratulation goes out to the PIF team for smashing their fundraising goal.  We are already looking forward to next year’s event!
