Adaptive Sailing

303 Access Dinghy sailing infront of the Walton Lighthouse

Adaptive Sailing is a hands on interactive class designed for persons with physical disabilities.

We use 303 Access Dinghies for the class, which are 12 ft extremely stable boats with a weighed centerboard.

The dock is equipped with a removalable host that allows participants to be transferred from the dock to boats, (if you have your own sling to use bring it with you, if not we have one for people to use at our facility).

The class focuses on beginning through advanced sailing techniques, you do not need any previous sailing experience to enroll.
