Sailing Yacht for Sale

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.

The sale will be used to raise funds to continue to provide sailing experiences on board “Pride of Man III”, for adults and children with conditions that affect their day-to-day life.
“Solway Adventurer” can be viewed in Douglas inner harbour. Viewings can be arranged by contacting Bobby Moore on 430532 or bobbymoorek9985@gmail.com or secretary@sftd-iom.com. Photos of Solway Adventurer can be found in the Gallery, page 2.

Sailing for the Disabled Endeavour Award.

After the all important AGM we had a lovely celebration, handing over last year’s introduced Sailing for the Disabled Endeavour Award. As previously mentioned, we have many committed members that deserve a big 'Thank you' for all they have done and this year’s winner is definitely one of them. Monica Clark has been, though a non sailing member, one of our most active members for decades. She has been Secretary for years but most people will know her as our dedicated Membership Secretary. Besides her official role she is always there to give advice or a helping hand. Her contribution has been and still is exceptional. Monica  will have the award in her possession for a year. A smaller copy was handed over for Monica to keep. The award has been made by the Manx Workshop for the Disabled.

Congratulations Monica, very well deserved.
