Poole Sailability

Poole Sailability welcomes anyone with a disability to enjoy active sailing in a friendly club environment during the summer months on the beautiful waters of Poole Harbour. Previous sailing experience is not necessary. We aim to accommodate most disabilities, but you should be able to board a boat unaided, or with limited physical assistance.

Disabled members interested in joining will be offered a free introductory sailing session, and if they enjoy it they will be entitled to join as a member for the season.

Children and vulnerable adults must be accompanied by a carer or guardian at all times. Please telephone in advance to book a place.
