Sailability Toronto

Sailability Toronto makes sailing possible for people who cannot easily access sailing activities because they are living with disability. Our aim is to give our clients and their supporters the most enjoyable and rewarding sailing experience possible.

 

‚ÄčOur base at the Toronto Amateur Sailing Club is on the foreshore of Lake Macquarie with parking and wheelchair-accessible unisex toilets on site.  We have our own jetty and pontoon and a crane to winch wheelchair-bound, or clients with movement difficulties, into and out of our dinghies.

 

There are eight Hansa 303 dinghies, two Hansa 303S dinghies (controlled using a small joystick and electric switches), five Hansa 2.3 dinghies and two safety boats.

 

We also provide a life jacket for everyone who sails.

 

Our sailing season runs from early October until the end of April or early May, every Thursday and Saturday morning from 9am until about 1pm.

 

We are always looking for more volunteers, and whilst experience in sailing and caring for people with disabilities is desirable, the attribute that we regard as most important is a caring, understanding and patient attitude towards those we serve.
