Sailability is the RYA initiative to engage with people who have a disability, including wheelchair users, the opportunity to gain access to the pleasures of sailing. Sailing has the ability to transform a person’s life, Sailability provides the access to the experience our wonderful sport.
Our aim is to introduce folks to wonderful water based activities, with a focus on those who have additional accessibility or other needs. To assist us in achieving this, we have equipment, such as a hoist, accessible boats, such as the Hansa 303; access to the water via pontoons and support from trained and qualified volunteers.
We welcome participation from anyone with a disability or additional need who faces disadvantage – whether you have any on the water experience or not.
We also welcome those who would like to become volunteers.
So come and join us to find out about the wonderful experience of being on the water, set your cares aside, come and have a go at learning a new skill, or just enjoy the wonder of Lower Lough Erne.
We started 2023 Sailability sessions during the second week in May, hoping to hold weekly Tuesday sessions, with four different time slots.
11.00am – 1.00pm, 1.30pm – 3.30pm, 3.30pm – 5.30pm and 6.00pm – 7.30pm.
