A big thank you to the Peter Harrison Foundation

They have given us a generous grant that covers half the amount needed to purchase, install, certify and train people in the operation of a new personnel hoist.  The other half came from a very kind grant from the Essex Trust.  The new hoist will be installed at Kingswear in the near future.  The hoist will provide a further access point  for people with disabilities, including those in wheelchairs, to sailing and boating on the river Dart.  The hoist enables them to safely and comfortably transfer between a pontoon and a boat.   Thank you Peter Harrison Foundation.  All of us at Dart Sailability really appreciate your kindness and support. Dart Sailability has an ongoing objective to identify other opportunities to provide access to the Dart along it's tidal length for sailing and boating for people with disabilities.
