Through RYA Sailability over 53,000 young people and adults with disabilities are introduced to sailing per year, and many go on to sail on a regular basis.
Sailing is one of the very few sports in which able-bodied sailors and disabled sailors can participate on equal terms. Imagine the thrill of sailing for people who can feel and hear but have no sight, or of sailing a boat at speed even though they can't walk, or of joining in a sport where deafness doesn't matter. Sailability continues to encourage and support people with disabilities to take up the sport and facilitate sites to develop sailing opportunities.
