More Than Sailing

Collectively spread the word so more disabled people can take part and build a regular habit of sailing and activity

Available to clubs and centres that are part of the Sailability programme, a series the templates give you a range of customisable powerpoint slides so you can tell the story of Sailability and its outcomes, and spread the word throughout your local networks.

The campaign builds on 6 sailor profiles, the barriers disabled people face to get involved with boating and key messages to reach new sailors.

The templates allow you to create social media posts, posters or slide shows, tailored for your club or centre, that:

  • highlight the benefits of boating
  • promote an event
  • celebrate a personal story or 'moment'
  • encourage others to refer potential sailors

Look at the guides below to get a taste.
