Sailability provides sailing opportunities for people with a disability regardless of their ability, mobility or circumstances. A variety of vessels are utilised, from stable 2-person dinghies to 20 foot and larger yachts. The sailing areas are safe protected waters and all activities are supported by a safety boat. The programs are run by trained and experienced volunteers and are dependent on the generosity of private donations and sponsorship, limited government grants and it’s volunteers who are passionate about sharing their love of sailing with people with disabilities.
Sailing out of South of Perth Yacht Club takes place on Wednesday mornings, with up to 8x “Access” dinghies, 1x Etchells and 2x “Red Witch” yachts. We still need volunteers to take on the roles of Skippers, Rigging helpers, Crane Operators, ‘Meet-and-Greet’ people, Safety Boat Drivers and observers and also lots of other helpers. Can you spare a few hours for this very worthwhile initiative of the Rotary Club of Melville and South of Perth Yacht Club? Sailing and boating skills are required for ‘On-Water’ activities. On-Shore roles can be fulfilled by willing volunteers. Be part of the team which promotes the joy of sailing as a recreation to people with disabilities.
Your immediate help is required!
Sailability is a ‘not-for-profit’ charitable organisation that offers opportunities for all people with disabilities, regardless of their level of abilities, skills or personal circumstances.
