It may seem daunting with lots to think about but we can offer training for volunteers to gain a greater awareness of disabilities and we have a team of regional Disability Development Officers that are on hand to help the club progress.
Sailability venues are required to provide monthly feedback on disability participation. In return each venue has access to a wide range of advice and information including free resources to support their sailors and volunteers. Sites are also promoted as disabled sailing providers through our online facility search ‘Where’s my nearest’. We ask venues each season to update their details with us to ensure we are offering the most up to date information to sailors and volunteers.
To apply to join the Sailability programme a venue must be either Affiliated to the RYA or a recognised RYA Training Centre.
To submit an application please download and complete the application form and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org or Sailability at RYA House, Ensign Way, Hamble, SO31 4YA.
Venues that have joined the programme have can request a copy of our Access Audit document 'Assessing Access at Boating Venues and Facilities' by emailing connie.Lebrun@rya.org.uk or logging into RYA Club Zone.
