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.

Volunteers Needed

Your immediate help is required!
Sailability is a volunteer-based sailing program that offers opportunities for all people with disabilities, regardless of their level of abilities, skill or personal circumstances.

Sailing out of South of Perth Yacht Club takes place on Wednesday mornings, with five ‘Access’ dinghies, an Etchell, three Red Witches, a Windrush yacht and two RHIBs all accompanied by a safety boat. We always need volunteers to take on the roles of dingy/yacht skippers & crew, rigging helpers, crane operators, ‘Meet & Greet’ people, power boat skippers, observers and many more water and shore-based helpers.

Can you spare a few hours weekly or on an ad hoc basis 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 roles. On-Shore roles can be fulfilled by anyone with a smile! Be part of a team which promotes the joy of sailing as a recreation to people with disabilities.

Sailability operates at South of Perth Yacht Club on Wednesday mornings from 9.00am to 12.30pm.

Sailability activity is very much weather dependent and sessions may need to be cancelled for this reason from time to time.
Please check the schedule on this page each week for cancellations.  We will endeavour to post our cancellations by 3.30pm the Tuesday afternoon prior.
