Making it easier for people with limited mobility or a disability to get on the water.
At BYS our club motto of Family, Friendship, Sailing says a lot about the type of place we want our members and guests to feel proud to be a part of. Everyday, in everything we do, all of us work hard to create an environment where everyone feels welcome.
And it’s this spirit that drives our award winning* Sailability Program, designed to make it easier than ever for people with limited mobility or a disability, to enjoy everything boating has to offer.
The program is open to all ages and abilities (from the novice to the experienced sailors). Using a fleet of Hasana 303’s (that won’t capsize or tip over), we have developed a sailing program that is perfect for ages 18 months up to 80+ years!
We cater for wheelchair access with a drive up jetty and loading sling available.
BYS Sailability Volunteers will assist you with basic sailing skills, and provide the life jacket and boat to get you sailing with a minimum of fuss. You don’t need to be a BYS member, but a gold coin donation towards boat maintenance would be welcomed.
If you’d like to enjoy the excitement of sailing, simply send us an email here or call Brian Jones on 03 5982 0456.
