Covenham Sailability looks at the means to include people of all ages in watersports, by working to eliminate barriers someone may be experiencing ( for example, but not limited to disability, age, deprivation)  Please get in touch to discuss you specific wishes. covenhammembership@gmail.com

Dependent on the level of disability participating in the sport of sailing can be done in a variety of ways.  If you have some experience of sailing you could sail solo in one of our various access dinghies (all very stable boats), or go on the water with experienced volunteer sailors or instructors.   We also have some larger boats, sailed by an experienced instructor or volunteer, capable of taking out small groups onto the water.  RYA courses are also available in all types of boats. Covenham is also equipped with a hoist for the transfer of people from wheelchairs into boats.

All sailing kit, Waterproofs, Buoyancy aids can be provided.

To find out more, please contact us.
