Sailing for the disabled is having an OPEN DAY on Saturday 16th June, from 12noon to 5pm.
Located in Douglas harbour, you will be able to take a look around our beautiful 48 foot yacht Pride of Mann III. There will be representatives from the committee, Skippers, crew, and enabled members to talk to, to hear their personal stories.
There will be free refreshments on offer, and should anyone wish to join we will be able to take applications on the day.
Sailing for the Disabled is looking for anyone who would like to sail as either crew or enabled crew. Right from experienced skippers to people who just want to give a helping hand with the work we do. No experience is required, as training is provided.
The cost of membership is just £10 per year. No further charge is made for sailing after membership.
Pride of Mann III is fitted out to enable people with a wide range of disabilities to sail.
So come along and see Pride of Mann III and meet our friendly members and crew.
Sailing for the Disabled is a wholly local charity. The charity is run by enthusiastic and experienced members. All staff are volunteers, ensuring all contributions go toward the running of the charity.
Sailing for the disabled has a website and Facebook page.

We are delighted to inform you that we collected a whopping £617.91 at the Port Erin Store Bag pack last Saturday. This including the sale of 11 SftD shopping bags.
A truly splendid result. A big thank you to a wonderful bag packing team, the manager of Port Erin store and to all the friendly and obliging staff. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, as always.
It’s that time of the year again when your membership fee is due on the 1st April. Each year our hardworking volunteer Membership Secretary spends a considerable amount of time and effort chasing members to pay their subscription.
PLEASE HELP HER AND PAY IN TIME !
The membership fee is still set at a minimum of £10 but you can make any payment above if you want to make a donation to your charity.
If you pay by cash it would be even more helpful if you were to start paying by standing order, this saves you the effort paying each year and also helps the Membership Secretary. That must be a win-win. The standing order form is available here.
The address to send your money, cheque or completed SO form to is: Monica Clark, 42 Wybourn Drive, Onchan,IM3 4AN
