At the end of 2019 Sailing for the Disabled received the rather surpricing message that the founder of a UK based charity similar to ours, had the intention to donate their yacht and assets. The reason behind it was quite sad as they were going through the process of winding down the charity. The donating charity Solway Adventure Sailing Club chose us because it was our charity that inspired them to initially set up the charity.
Unfortunately we are unable to run two boats and we had to decide to put "Solway Adventurer" up for sale.The yacht will be sold by sealed bid. The Terms of Sale for anybody interested can be found here.
