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.
