Sailors with disABILITIES offer a Winds of Joy Program which is designed to give children with disability and disadvantaged children and youth the opportunity to go sailing. Through our crew, SWD can provide positive role models, demonstrating that people with a disability do not have to be confined by it and creating optimism. This program is run entirely by volunteers and there is no cost to participants for this activity. Group bookings of minimum 10, including at least 8 with disability/special needs can be booked by school or community groups. We can accommodate up to 3 wheelchairs. To book this program please Sign Up on our website and login with your username and password.
