I’m not fully able bodied so I won’t be able to get in and out of the boat.
No problem. Our experienced volunteers are there to help. We have a specially designed hoist that can lift anybody in and out of our very stable boats.
I don’t have a physical disability so I won’t be eligible to sail.
Sailability is all-ability sailing. We aim to introduce sailing to everyone who’d like to give it a go.
Severe behavioural difficulties won’t be welcome.
Yes they will. As long as carers are present on shore we’ll take anyone out on the water. Sailing often has a very calming effect.
Sailability only takes students sailing.
We take all age groups from primary school to mature age. Out oldest volunteer is 80 and loves sailing our Access dinghies.
I won’t be able to afford to go sailing. It’ll be much too expensive.
Yes you will. Your first sail is free. Try before you buy. Subsequently $8 per sail lasting about 30 minutes. Includes sailing instruction if required.
Special rates available.
We don’t want to deprive anyone of the sailing experience on financial grounds.
I get seasick so I could never go sailing.
We sail on the Causeway Lake that is as flat as the proverbial pancake.
I’m in a wheelchair. How can I possibly get in and out of your boats?
Our floating pontoon has been designed to accommodate wheelchairs. A specially constructed hoist will easily lift you in and out of the sailing boats.
I don’t know anyone at Sailability. I’d be too embarrassed to turn up with a bunch of strangers.
We are a very friendly group of volunteers. The first time you could just pop down on a sail day and say hello.
