The BYS Sailability Program uses the 303 yachts that are ideally suited to many who would like to try sailing.

  • You don’t need special clothing.
  • You don’t have to have your own yacht.
  • You don’t have to be sure you like sailing.
  • You can be very young (18 months), or rather older (80+ years!).
  • We provide the life jackets.
  • We teach you the basic sailing skills. You can sail with a friend who knows sailing if you wish or we can help you to learn how it is done.

We only ask for a gold coin per session. You don’t have to join the club. That can come later if you get really hooked on sailing as a sport.

If you are in a wheelchair we have a sling and a crane to get you into the yacht.

The yacht has a big keel so it cannot tip over – it will lean a bit but that adds to the fun.

If this seems to suit you and your family, then contact us for further advice, including details of sailing sessions.
