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.
