Day Sailing and Accessible Challenges

Let’s go sailing!

Enjoy learning a new skill and chat with others who have MS. A day sail is an opportunity to become aware of the basics of sailing or to brush up on skills that you may already have. It’s a chance to experience the benefits of sailing without committing to a longer time away from home or a more testing challenge.

Our Accessible Sailing sessions are so important for EVERYONE to experience the amazing benefits of sailing.

A first step to new possibilities… whatever your ability or experience, these challenges are a really good way of safely getting out on the water.
