AFFORDABLE SAILING FOR THE DISABLED IN TORBAY
The Disabled Sailing Association is non-profit making, run for the disabled and by the disabled.
THE THRILL AND JOY OF SAILING AT SEA
We aim to give people with a disability, family and carers the opportunity to enjoy a safe and pleasurable experience of seagoing sailing, including short local cruising of about two to three hours and for the more adventurous, longer coastal passages.
We have Disability Awareness-trained volunteer skippers and crew, all with CRB clearance, working with our disabled members enabling them to participate as fully as possible in a seagoing sailing experience.
We encourage and support, when funding and grants permit, our disabled members and volunteers to take RYA training courses. Several disabled members have already achieved this.
Our vessels have all taken the RNLI sea safety checks and follow their recommendations.
You can donate to us by going to www.mydonate.bt.com/charities/disabledsailingassociation and make your donation by following the instructions there.
You can also raise money for FREE while online shopping through www.easyfundraising.org.uk/dsa
