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.

  • Thank You

    A huge amount has been achieved over the winter season and I would like to personally thank everyone involved in managing and maintaining the boats, plus the many others working tirelessly away from the Green Shed on the fundraising, safety checks, training and administrative tasks that ensure that Dart Sailability can enjoy another Summer afloat.
  • Tuesday 28 April

    Next Tuesday is the final opportunity for maintenance and to tidy our side of the Green Shed.  We are looking for as many volunteers as possible to help from 0930 to clear both workshop storage areas.  We will sort out jumble for sale, scrap for recycling and start setting up and moving into a new secure workshop.  Please bring boxes and bags so that we can take away as much rubbish as possible and avoid having to pay for a skip.
    Our new Bosun is planning to set up a better equipped workshop to help increase our efficiency when refitting the boats.  Donations of power and hand tools, shallow or small metal filing drawers and fixings would be most welcome.  We are also looking for a drill press, bench vice and bandsaw plus similar equipment.
  • Disability Awareness certificate
