Disabled Sailing Association
The Disabled Sailing Association is non-profit making, run for the disabled and by the disabled. We aim to give people with a disability, family and carers the opportunity to enjoy a safe and pleasurable experience of seagoing sailing, including short local cruising of about two to three hours and for the more adventurous, longer coastal passages.
We have Disability Awareness-trained volunteers, skippers and crew, all with CRB clearance, working with our disabled members to enabling them to participate as fully as possible in a seagoing sailing experience.
We encourage and support, when funding and grants permit, our disabled members and volunteers to take RYA training courses. Several disabled members have already achieved this. Our vessels have all taken the RNLI sea safety checks and follow their recommendations.
All safety equipment is provided. Sailing takes place in Torbay and further afield depending on the weather and the people aboard.
