About Sailability (RYA)

The DBF have been working with Sailability for a number of years. It is a wonderfully inclusive organisation enabling people with disabilities to enjoy sailing in whatever way suits their needs and wants.

Boating at your pace adapted for you – Sailability

With over 200 locations across the UK and further afield, sailors enjoy the outdoors, feel freedom on the water, are active, learn new skills and build confidence. It welcomes new and experienced sailors and, for those with disabilities who’d like to take the sport further, there is a Para Sailing Hub which encourages disabled sailors and increases opportunities for them to race and train, locally, nationally and internationally.

Sailability relies heavily on volunteers with huge numbers of people giving their time to get people on the water, no matter what it takes. If you’re interested in joining them, there will be an opportunity to find out how you can get involved on the Day of Fun at Whitefriars…

About Whitefriars Sailing Club

Friendly.  Accessible.  Fun.

Whatever your age or sailing ability, die-hard racer, newcomer to sailing or you simply love mucking about on the water, here at The Whitefriars Sailing Club our focus is on making sailing fun and accessible for all.

Situated on the stunning Cotswold Water Park, Whitefriars is run by the members for the members.  We believe that by striking a healthy balance between competition and fun we can give everyone access to the same opportunities to learn, improve and participate as much or as little as they want.

That’s why we offer a diverse range of on and off the water activities, including racing, cruising, an extensive RYA training programme and a whole host of social activities for all the family.  Proud to be one of the top clubs in the UK for our Sailability capabilities, our friendly team of enthusiastic volunteers support this varied programme throughout the year.
