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.

    Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week is four days of racing in Start Bay from Thursday 27th to Sunday 30th August.  We have entered the Sonar for each day in the small keelboat class and it will be crewed by up to four including a volunteer skipper and assistant. There are normally two races per day.  Details of the racing can be found at
    If you would like to be a part of the action, please Email Bob, indicating the day/s you can sail and in what capacity.  Feel free, also, to ask any questions.  You can request to sail on one or all the days.  I will allocate crews with a view to giving everyone who applies a chance to sail.  Note there is no normal DS sailing during the week.
