Give sailing a go at Sailability's first regatta
2:20pm Monday 2nd September 2013 in News
GIVE sailing a try for free at the very first RYA Sailability Southern Regatta.
Sailors with a range of disabilities will be hitting the water at Southampton Water Activities Centre on Saturday for the inaugural event and want to see as many people there as possible.
The event, which coincides with National Paralympic Day, will welcome competitors from Sailability centres across the south who will race in a variety of classes to be crowned winners of a trophy.
Disabled people of all ages and abilities are also invited to have a go at sailing with free dinghy taster sessions running throughout the regatta, off Floating Bridge Road.
Disabled sailing organisation the RoRo Project will also be offering trial sessions in its catamaran, and celebrated sailor Geoff Holt will be on hand to provide taster sessions in the fully accessible powerboat WetWheels.
Ali Gunn, from RYA Sailability, said: “We are really excited about the very first Southern Sailability regatta, which will be a fantastic opportunity to bring together Sailability sailors from across the south.
“If you’ve been inspired to be more active by the Paralympics or you’re looking for a new activity to take you outdoors then the taster sessions are the perfect opportunity to get out on the water and find out what the sport is all about.”
If you are a Sailability sailor and would like to take part in the regatta or you would like to book a taster session, call 023 8091 5753.
