During the Festive Season it is customary to send Christmas messages to clients and customers. Perhaps, this year, instead of sending cards, you might possibly consider donating to one of our local charities, thus providing valuable help in maintaining the many services provided to our Community.
"Sailing for the Disabled" would be thrilled to receive one such donation, enabling us to continue providing the sailing experience to individuals with disabilities. Most charities are currently struggling to generate funds and certainly any one of the Island's charities would be grateful to receive a donation, especially at this time of year.
Notwithstanding, on behalf of all our volunteers and members, Sailing for the Disabled would like to wish you and your team a very Merry Christmas and a successful and prosperous 2020
Volunteers are needed for our Bag Pack in Shoprite, Bowring Road, Ramsey on Sunday 8th December.
As well as raising funds to keep our fantastic yacht Pride of Mann III sailing, bag packs also help to raise awareness of the charity.
Please contact Adrienne on 466514 if you could possibly spare an hour or two to help with bag packing or just talking to customers and give information about your charity.
Many thanks to Shoprite for allowing us to use their store.
As you might have noticed, the berth of Pride of Mann III is still empty. Unfortunately we have to be patient a little longer as works progress.
The engineers are working hard on getting the propeller and rope cutter ready but since a special modification is needed to be able to attach the rope cutter, works take a little longer. Rest assured, the boat will be in tip-top shape and even more safe than before once back home.
To give you the opportunity to get familiar with cruising we organise a local cruise from
What does this mean:
3 to 4 days of sailing available in Manx waters. You may join the boat for the duration sleeping on board, or, join the boat for a full day sail (sleeping at home), the boat will be in a Manx port each night.
This is an ideal opportunity to experience the fun of cruising, sleeping and eating on board.
You may also find out if you suffer from motion sickness!!

Whilst works on Pride of Mann III were progressing an unforeseen problem with the propeller came up. The propeller has been taken of for repairs and also to fit a rope cutter for extra safety. They are trying their hardest to get things sorted but it means the boat is not expected to be back before the end of next week.
So we all have to be a little bit more patient to be able to enjoy our sparkling clean and polished boat but with the current Manx weather that might have happened anyway.
