Our aims for inclusive sailing are:
- To provide the necessary support for people with disabilities to sail.
- Encourage sailing as an activity, primarily for pleasure, but also to facilitate those who desire to develop their competitive potential.
- Train volunteers, sailors, instructors, family and friends to facilitate sailors with disabilities to enjoy our sport.
- Develop and foster team spirit between able bodied and those with disabilities, through leisure and competitive sailing.
