Sailability charts course: sailing for all!

Sailability Whitsunday Inc has been established in Airlie Beach since 2011 and has grown successfully over the last 4 years.

Based downstairs at the Whitsunday Sailing Club our local branch of this international organisation has as its key objective, to encourage and facilitate sailing and boating for people regardless of disabilities or age, in social, recreational and competitive activities.

With branches throughout the twenty countries belonging to Sailability this may well develop into a new form of tourism for nearly twenty per cent of Australian population with a disability.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) defines a disability as ‘any limitation, restriction or impairment, which has lasted, or is likely to last, for at least six months and restricts everyday activities’.

We have attracted new volunteers but always need more to be safe on our sailing days. We need help with our five specially designed 303 access dinghies and 5 multihulls as well as support and safety craft.

People who want to be involved in a supportive activity regardless of age and ability are sought to give it a go with Sailability Whitsunday.
