Want to be on board for the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race? A $25 donation allows you to upload a photo of yourself, family, pet or friends to be printed on the Faceboat Rolex Sydney to Hobart racing yacht. 174 have been uploaded so far and there is room for 3,668 more!

Faceboat is a campaign to raise funds for the charity Sailors with disABILITIES. It aims to raise awareness about the changing global perceptions of disabilities. The innovative fundraising campaign will offer the experience onboard with all the exhilaration of this year’s Rolex Sydney to Hobart yacht race.

Through www.faceboat.org.au, everyone can tick their bucket list and participate in one of the world’s toughest and most exciting blue water classics. With a tax deductible donation of $25, mums, dads, kids and grandparents can have their face on Kayle - the 52ft ocean racer that SWD is again sailing to Hobart on Boxing Day.

Donors will upload a photo of themselves, their children, and maybe even their pets with these to be printed on a mosaic and plastered around the hull of Kayle, a custom-built yacht ergonomically sensitive to the needs of people with a disability.

More than 3,800 snapshots can be placed on Kayle, and SWD is confident that schools, companies large and small and other organisations will also participate.

Since 1995, the SWD team has been involved in the Sydney to Hobart, finishing in top positions as well as experiencing setbacks.

Kayle’s mosaic of photos will be unveiled on Tuesday, 3 December 2013 -- International Day of People with Disability.

The SWD sailing team for this year’s iconic race will again be a mix of inexperienced and experienced sailors, many with varying degrees of disability.

'It's our differences that keep us together and make us understand our circumstance,' said David Pescud, the Founder of SWD.

One of the most anticipated sailing events each year, the Rolex Sydney to Hobart race is viewed by millions and attracts sailing teams and yachts from around the world. The 630 nautical mile yacht race is one of the world’s most challenging ocean races, even for able-bodied sailors.
