Sailing with disabled

Our sailing with disabled program is mainly divided into three different programs:

Sail and enjoy:

Through ‘Sail and enjoy‘ we start to create change.

It’s the first step for many on the journey towards accepting their circumstances and believing they can achieve more.

We give disabled and disadvantaged kids and adults the chance to ‘try sailing’.

Our participants will:

  • Feel the wind on their face and the power of nature.

  • Steer the boat and learn some basic sailing skills.

  • Meet and engage with mentors and role models.

  • Experience first-hand, new and practical solutions to challenges.

All in a safe, non-comparative environment.

Sail and learn:

Our ‘Sail and learn‘ program opens a whole new world of challenge, skill development and discovery for young people who have disengaged from learning. 

We go beyond the traditional classroom and didactic teaching…

… instead, offering interactive and engaged learning through the medium of sailing.

The program:

  • Is designed around contemporary educational thinking.

  • Is built on sound educational theory. 

  • Provides an environment that facilitates learning.

Sail and relax:

‘Sail and relax’ days are a chance for the amazing mums, dads, grandparents, guardians, brothers, sisters, friends and others who care for disabled and disadvantaged people, to take a bit of time out for themselves.

On a ‘Sail and relax’ day, your carers group comes sailing on board S/Y Thyra and experiences respite and being cared for by our amazing volunteer crews. It gives you a chance to take a break and also network with other carers.

These sessions must be booked as a group, we can accommodate a minimum of 8 people per session and a maximum of 12.

We encourage your group to bring along any refreshments you might like on the boat as well as adequate sun protection to ensure that you are comfortable and enjoy your sail fully.
