Sailability at PRSC

 

Sailability offers people of all-abilities the opportunity to sail regardless of their level of ability, skill or personal circumstances.  Sailability Albany operates at Princess Royal Sailing Club in Little Grove with the support of volunteers.

We offer sailing experiences and training in Access dinghies and larger yachts, and provide supported sailing for participants with high-needs.  Sailability has specialised equipment including a wheel chair accessible floating pontoon; a hoist and harness to facilitate boarding; and a custom-made bean-bag chair to provide support on-board for those who may need it.

Please note that places in the program are limited.    
Applications will be assessed and accepted on the basis of availability of suitable boat spaces and applicants will be advised prior to the commencement of the season.

New applicants are required to attend an orientation session prior to participating.
Participants may join as individual members or through their support agency’s group membership.
