How to get involved

If your group or organisation would like to get on the water we can help.

We work with a range of different sites who can provide experiences and regular on the water sessions. There are a number of different ways to get on the water which include dinghy sailing, windsurfing, yachting, narrowboats and powerboats.

There are a number of different boats and windsurf boards that are designed to support people with disabilities so that everyone can get on the water and have fun.

Things to consider
Different sites operate on different days of the week. Some sites are open seven days a week other just a few days or evenings mid-week or just at weekend.
Have a think about whether mid-week sessions or weekend session would work for your group or organisation.

How many people are there in the group?
For example you could have 12 people sailing in 6 sailing dinghies or a larger group taking a trip down the canal in a narrow boat.

Would you like to take part in regular activity?
For example once a week for a number of weeks or are you looking for a Taster session experience?

RYA Sailability sites have an option to use the Certificate of achievement logbook scheme which allows participants to develop skills over a number of sessions.
RYA Sailability have been working with the Youth Sport Trust to develop an inclusive sailing project to help Sailability groups and centres engage with local special schools to get children out on the water. The project forms part of the School Games, but can be used as a standalone project to work with local disability groups or schools.
