Fuel your competitive fire on the race course. There are lots of different boats to race and events to enter close to home or across the world.
Racing is about testing your skills against other sailors and the conditions on the day. You can race locally and regularly at many Sailability groups and Sailing Clubs.
The thought of being on the start line can feel a bit daunting initially, but once there you will discover everyone is supporting you and making it round the course is all that matters. Ask an experienced volunteer or instructor to go racing with you and learn as you go.
Winning can come later!
If it’s not happening at your club, why not organise something or contact us to find out where you can race.
Try sailing at different venues with others who sail the same boat as you . The Class Associations organise a series of open events and national championships each year, or join an open series such as the Sailjuice Winter Series. Beyond that are European and World Championships to meet and compete with para sailors from all over the world.
Or get involved with the likes of the Special Olympics, GBR Blind Sailing and Deaf Sailing UK – all of whom provide routes to local, national events and international events.
Every year there are disabled crews taking part in iconic events like the Round Island Race, the Small Ships Races and the sailjuice Winter series .
You could say I swing by the club for a spot of racing now and then.
They said I would never walk again, they didn't mention sailing.
