And they’re back on the water! Members of Dart Sailability enjoyed their first day ‘s sailing after lockdown restrictions were eased.
The charity welcomed sailors and volunteers to its new base at Dartside Quay, Galmpton and members can look forward to a busy summer of boating and social activities.
Principal Ian Wakeling says: “It’s fantastic to see so many volunteers and sailors after all the lockdown restrictions. The freedom and independence that our sailors experience out on the beautiful River Dart is a joy to see.” Sailor Gwen says: “I’m just so pleased to be back on the water, it’s been so long.”
The charity has a wide range of motor and sailing boats and its new location gives sailors the opportunity to enjoy safe sailing on some of the most beautiful stretches of the River Dart. Individual and group memberships are available for organisations helping people with a disability and all members can gain valuable Royal Yachting Association qualifications appropriate to their abilities.
The charity enables people with any disability to enjoy boating, sailing and social activities and welcomes new sailors and volunteers.
