Sailing for People with Disabilities

Since 1991 Sailability Auckland has been providing opportunities for children and adults with disabilities to learn to sail and race, or to just experience being in control of a sailing boat.

Our aim is to provide people with disabilities the opportunity to sail in safety and to experience adventure and freedom – building mobility, self confidence and pride through achievement”.

We have sailing programs suitable for almost anyone regardless of the level of their disability or sailing skills. The yachts we use for our programs have many safety features including weighted centre boards / keels ensuring the boats are virtually impossible to capsize.

Many of our members have competed in sailing events around the world and we currently have six members campaigning to represent New Zealand at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Paralympics in all three Paralympic classes. Others just want to have fun on the water and enjoy the freedom sailing can offer.
