The more members we have the bigger the prizes, so please consider joining. The cost is only £2 per month, that is £24 usually paid annually.

DO IT TODAY AND YOU COULD BE OUR NEXT WINNER !
WE ARE LOOKING FOR NEW DISABLED MEMBERS!
We’re looking forward to resuming sails as soon as the current Covid restrictions allow.
To our existing members-
During the lockdowns, have you been in touch with someone you know who’d like to come sailing with you? Read on!
To potential new members-
We’re issuing a friendly invitation to a ‘see how you like it sail’. It will last a couple of hours, ideally in pleasant weather during which you’ll see Douglas Bay from a different viewpoint and enjoy the experience.
Pride of Mann III will be crewed by a friendly team who’ll look after you and show you the ropes.
Then, if you like it, you can apply for membership which, for £10 a year, will enable you to come sailing with us as often as you wish, whenever there’s space on a planned sail.
To book a place on a sail, contact CREWMASTER via email@example.com or 471222, mentioning if you’re new to Sailing for the Disabled.
You’ll be sure of a warm welcome, and something exciting & different to look forward to when we’re able to sail again.
P.S we can’t promise to see a pod of dolphins/mermaids but you may be lucky!
Another year has flown buy. A strange year with lots of uncertenties, asking a lot of our patience. However, at Sailing for the Disabled we stay positive and we believe that a great year is lying ahead of us with lots of sailing opportunities. But first of all It’s time to pay your membership which runs from the 1st April 2021 till 31 March 2022.
If you don't pay by Standing Order, please consider doing so. This saves you the effort paying each year and also saves our hardworking Membership Secretary a considerable amount of time. The standing Order form is available HERE.
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.
The address to send your completed Standing Order form, money or cheque to is: Monica Clark, 42 Wybourn Drive, Onchan, IM3 4AN
Restarting our sailing schedule- January 2021
The IOM government has released details of the Circuit Break exit framework.
If the island achieves 21 days since community transmission of Covid19 since the last known case (12th January), the current planning assumes that the Release stage may be around 1st February 2021. This lifts all previous restrictions (except borders) on business and activities, and there is no advisory guidance for social distancing and face coverings as the risk to the community is very low. Some individuals may wish to continue with distancing and face covering and this is addressed in stage 4 of SFTD risk assessment.
The need for good hygiene practices and being vigilant for C19 symptoms remains.

The next scheduled sail is on 10th February and hopefully we can return to “normal” sailing!
23rd January 2021.
