Sailing with a disability can seem like a daunting challenge but with support and help the task can be made so much more fun and manageable.
By volunteering your time you can help more people enjoy sailing by utilising your skills to teach people to sail, drive powerboats, assist people with disabilities on and off the water, help organise events, assist with first aid, fundraising, refreshments and rigging, there is a large variety of roles to be filled not just for able bodied helpers but everyone can get involved.
To find your local Sailability site to offer your support please use the 'Find a Facility' search on the website by selecting the Sailability Centre facility and the region you are interested in. You can request a printed copy of this from our office, please e-mail email@example.com with your details.
