Welcome to Dart Sailability

Dart Sailability is an organisation which enables anybody with any disability to enjoy sailing, boating and associated activities including social events.  Based at Dartside Quay at Galmpton, the charity is run and managed by volunteers.  We are part of the Royal Yachting Association’s national Sailability scheme and also a training centre and centre of excellence.

 

We have a wide range of boats including dinghies, landing craft for river cruises and sailing yachts and whether you are an old hand or have never been aboard before, we cater for all abilities.  Our boats are adapted to individual sailors’ needs and we have a hoist for wheelchair users.  There’s a clubhouse where sailors and volunteers can have a cuppa and cake after sailing and discuss the day’s events and we have outside space for events and socialising.

 

It costs over £25,000 per year to keep our disabled members afloat so all donations and fund raising are really appreciated.

 

We welcome members with any form of physical or mental disability, together with groups and sailing takes place two to three times per week according to tides.  Just log on to our Programme to see what’s happening. Volunteers undergo thorough and regular training, and all members can gain valuable RYA sailing and powerboat qualifications.
