We aim to improve the lives of disabled and disadvantaged people through our sailing programs. By developing their confidence and team skills, we help people meet life’s challenges with determination and optimism.
We provide free sailing and training programs for disabled and disadvantaged people and their carers. Our programs use sailing as a tool to build confidence, self-esteem and new relationships. Through sailing, we start to forget about what we can't do and focus on what we can do.
We have taken over 64,000 disabled and disadvantaged people sailing
