Carsington Sailability Overview
Carsington Sailability's aim is to enable people with disabilities to try sailing and take part regularly. It is the perfect sport to feel tranquility and freedom in the water or progress your skills and become competitive.
The Group has both disabled and able-bodied members working together to achieve this objective.
We have excellent facilities and equipment. There is a well-maintained fleet of sailing boats, specifically designed for those with limited mobility, including Hansa dinghies and an R S Venture Keel.
The group meets on Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the year with the exception of January. Sailing outside the main season, i.e. November to April, does require the wearing of either wetsuits or drysuits.
Why not come along and give sailing a try? Here we are on the water. Having great fun and laughter. Helping others and learning all the time. It's almost our philosophy.
If assistance is required, it is advisable to contact the Club before attending.
Every year Sailability runs a variety of events, including dinghy racing and training sessions.
We are very proud and happy to work with a very wide variety of Groups and the following YouTube videos are a perfect example of how friendly our Sailability Club is, and how keen we are for inclusivity. Watch the YouTube videos as an introduction to our Club and Sailing.
The group is looking forward to a busy year and is always happy to meet people who are interested in getting involved in sailing or who are willing to help.
