‘Sailability’ is the RYA’s national programme aiming to enable people with disabilities to get involved with sailing. It has branches all over the UK and encourages sailing at all levels, from first-time sailors to Paralympians. The Guernsey Sailing Trust is very proud to be a part of this programme.
One of the fantastic things about sailing is that the sport can be accessible and inclusive for all. It caters to all types of personality, from those looking for a relaxing experience that brings you closer to the natural world; to those wanting the adrenaline rush of sailing in a strong breeze, with the boat surfing down waves and spray flying over the side of the boat! In all conditions, sailing gives the feeling of independence and responsibility, in the little world that is a small sailboat.
All sailing sessions are tailored to the individual or group, taking into consideration their schedules, the weather, tides, experience and abilities. Participants can also work through the RYA Sailability scheme, gaining certificates and badges while tracking their progress.
If you are interested in trying sailing or would just like to know a little more about it, please give us a call and we can discuss it further with you. All you will need to bring is your sense of adventure and a smile!
