Making Everything Possible

We could not exist without our members

We are proud to have members from all walks of life. They all share one thing in common – they believe in the transformative and restorative power of sailing.

Inclusion for all

Sailing with Pride

At Sailing for the Disabled, inclusivity is not just a goal; it’s our foundation.

We celebrate differences, foster understanding, and embrace every single member as an integral part of our sailing family.

Together, we navigate the waters of acceptance, support, and camaraderie.

Sailing for the Disabled has enabled me to meet and get to know a wide and diverse community on the Isle of Man. I’ve learnt new sailing skills, and got to know the island from the sea.

From All Backgrounds

Celebrating Diversity

Our members encompass a wide spectrum of ages, abilities, and backgrounds.

From seasoned sailors to newcomers, young to old, we thrive on the diversity of our members that enrich our sailing trips.

I have something new to focus on that I love doing, with people who are open minded and wish to keep learning themselves. Membership of the organisation, and being able to contribute to helping others achieve their goals, is very fulfilling.

All Abilities Welcome

Our members are a mix of new and experienced, able-bodied and enabled, and sailing and non-sailing individuals.

Whether you want to offer something back to the community, or whether you would benefit from being in receipt of our services, there is a place for you in our organisation!
