Disabled Sailing


The Friday evening disability sailing sessions for the 2019 season are from Friday 3rd May to Friday 6th September starting at 17:30 and ending around 20:30. Last year was our most successful to date with an average of 25 attending each Friday, and this year we are trying to improve on that. For members who volunteered to help last year, thank you so much and we hope you can again help out in this coming season.
For those thinking of coming along then here is an outline of what assistance is needed to run the sessions.

Helping to fit buoyancy jackets.
Launching and recovering dinghies.
Helping participants into and out of the dinghies.
Helming the cruisers.
Helming the ‘wheely’ boat.
Providing safety cover in the ribs.

It is a very busy evening with three 45 min sailing slots, and we need a minimum of 4 volunteers to run the sessions but more hands spread the work load. You do not have to attend for all of the evening, any time that you can spare is appreciated.
If you can assist, please let the Vice Commodore, John Everard know in advance so that he is confident that each session is covered. Volunteering counts towards your Aztec Duties.
