Mobility / Wheelchair Support

Sailing sessions are available for any kind of impairment, physical disability or learning disability. There is a wheelchair friendly powerboat where the front section flaps down to allow ease of boarding for those with any kind of mobility problems.

Classrooms have a 1:12 ramp access (recommended) and the door is the standard 800mm width and can be accessed at an angle with plenty of room to turn into the doorway.

Ramps give access to a pontoon by a slipway and there are boats adapted for those with special access requirements as in the pictures above.  Tables are wheelchair friendly in the classrooms for covering the theoretical aspects of the sailing or powerboating courses.

The sailing school is based on a level quay with a smooth surface and great access straight to the sailing school. The main sailing school consists of large huts and the doors are always open so no need for an intercom and no entry restrictions. Waterproofs and safety equipment is chosen for you by your instructor and ramped access into the classroom is available if it is raining. The yacht harbour itself is on a level hard tarmacked surface throughout. If you require assistance from your vehicle then this is no problem and there are always staff around to assist with this. If you require special assistance then please notify us on booking.
