‘Sailability offers the people of Antigua and Barbuda with disabilities the opportunity for social interaction and sailing.’
To offer the people of Antigua and Barbuda regardless of their age, mental or physical disability, a chance to enter a world filled with new sensory and physical experiences. A most relaxing and enjoyable experience that also offers social interaction and a day out. It gives disabled people the opportunity to achieve the unimaginable at no cost.
In 2014 we imported two specially made Challenger trimarans from the UK, for people with disabilities, We have joined the National Sailing Academy in English Harbour from where we sail. After two seasons we have 85 participants each week. The participants come from the Adele School, Victory Centre, National Vocational Centre and the Care Project. We currently have two trained and experienced Antiguan instructors.
To maintain this program as it currently we need $25,000EC each year for general running costs. Currently, we do not really have the capacity to handle those with physical disabilities. We need a lifting hoist and a vehicle with wheelchair access.
