Sail With Us!
Sailing is a powerful way for people to push their limits and capture independence and freedom. The DSC's docks are equipped with accessible ramps, Hoyer lifts and plenty of shaded space.
This is a no-cost, volunteer-supported program that allows individuals with disabilities to experience the freedom of sailing and learn to sail.
Sailors are welcome to come to the Downtown Sailing Center (DSC) to be coached and supported by a tireless group of volunteers, friends and family. Check in starts at 9:45 am, and sailing time will be from 10:00am until 12:00pm.
This year, we are offering racing, with coaching available !
Three options for sailing are offered:
Please indicate your preference upon registration!
The boats we offer:
Hoyer lift transfer assistance is available for boarding/disembarking any of our boats. We will provide all safety equipment, including life jackets.
Please note: We are continuing to require face coverings on the docks and while sailing during these events,
unless you are single-handing (sailing solo).
Our Adaptive program is supported by volunteers, and we welcome all types of help from greeters and escorts, to those who can rig the Hansa Access Dinghies.
Sailing experience is not required; just compassion, a willingness to learn, and a desire to have fun!
We offer special discounted rates for organizations or groups of individuals with disabilities. We offer sailing events for groups of 5-35 people. While this is on a pay-what-you-can basis, we recommend $50 per person contribution. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We will be offering group sailing events again in 2022!
