welcome to sailability

We are a registered charity offering sailing and waterborne activities for disabled children and young adults throughout Derbyshire and Leicestershire.

We also offer the opportunity for less mobile sailors to continue sailing when a conventional dinghy may be a little too much for them to handle.

There is no lower or upper age limit.

Activity: Powerboats

our activities: powerboats

Powerboating is provided primarily for reasons of safety on the water.

However, on our annual day, because of the many people attending and their possible lack of sailing experience, we use powerboats to show our visitors around the lake, allowing them to experience being afloat.
