Sailability Gold Coast
Sailability Gold Coast is a not-for-profit volunteer based organisation dedicated, through sailing, to enriching the lives of people in our community who are living with a disability.
Sailability is always looking for people to come and enjoy the pleasure of sailing - just the water, the boat and the breeze along with an experienced sailor to sail the boat. If you are sufficiently able and want to progress Sailability will teach you to sail. You could progress, with the support of Sailability, to sailing independently or venture into racing if that is your objective.
The fleet consists of Access dinghies, motor boats and yachts. The sailing area is the Broadwater and sailing is based at the wheelchair friendly site of the Southport Yacht Club's sailing squadron at 1 Marina Crescent, Hollywell.
Sailing days are Tuesdays 9.00am-1.00pm for all disabilities, and as a new trial, Saturdays 8.30am-12.00 noon for those with physical disabilities and who may or may not be in employment.
Come and see Sailability in action for yourself.
