About Us

Sailability is a program at the Canberra Yacht Club offering an additional level of support, an established network of volunteers, and equipment to assist people of all-abilities to get into sailing. It is an international program first introduced by the CYC during 2017.

Here are some of the ways sailing is inclusive:

Different types of boat provided by clubs including the Hansa Class that are easy to sail.

Instructors that are able to adapt their teaching methods to suit individuals of all-abilities.

Equipment to assist those with limited mobility to get into and out of boats.

Modified docking areas that are accessible.

Affordable options to participate.

Events for people of all-abilities to compete.

The Sailing Pathway for people of all-abilities to progress through.

If you have a disability and wish to experience “Freedom on the Water”, you are especially welcome. Sailing is conducted typically on a Sunday morning during the warmer months.
