Dart Sailability exists to encourage anyone with a disability to take part and enjoy the sport of sailing on the river Dart. Purpose built boats, which can be adapted to meet the needs of individual sailors are available to enable disabled people to get afloat. A hoist is available to safely lift wheelchair users into the boats.

We welcome new members with any disability, please go to the Information for Sailors page or Contact Us if you have any questions.

We are located on the Kingswear side of the beautiful River Dart at Noss Marina. At Dart Sailability you can have a leisurely cruise on the river, learn to sail, take part in competitive racing or just enjoy good company and a cup of coffee.

Come along on a Tuesday or Saturday for a free taster session.

Looking for an adventure?

The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) (  are a UK-based organisation that owns and operates the only two tall ships in the world that were designed and built to enable all physical abilities to go sailing. 

Both of our ships, Tenacious and Lord Nelson, sail all around the world, and on board everybody gets the chance to participate in all aspects of running the ship - from setting the sails and helming the ship to climbing aloft and taking a watch. Since the charity’s inception 35 years ago our philosophy has been that life should be about equality, sharing and celebrating our individual differences and working together to achieve greater things.
