Over 20 years of providing sailing and power boating for people with disabilities
Lymington SailAbility is a charity that provides sailing and power boat opportunities for people with disabilities. It provides a safe environment that still allows the sense of freedom and exhilaration that sailing can give.
Whilst we are not a life saving charity, we can be life changing, often giving people trapped by a disability a sense of control and enjoyment they thought they had lost.
Our mission is to make sailing and power boating accessible to all!

An extra special thanks is due to Tom, our Deputy Chairman/participant who was not only the chief organiser but also on many occasions gave up his own place on board when we were oversubscribed by members or visitors who turned up unannounced.
Spirit of Scott Bader. The purpose built Catamaran for disabled people is coming back to Lymington on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th September, offering Lym Sailability members the chance to go on a day sail for £20.
As of today there are only 2 places left each day. Open to sailors or volunteers.
Thursday is just a normal sail, 10 a.m - 4 p.m. Friday is a sail from Lym to Scott Baders home base in Port Solent, Portsmouth. Then we will all share cost of mini-bus taxi back to Lymington.
Please let Steph know on 07837 380814, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. if you would like to come
To anyone interested in the fully rigged old warship drifting up the Solent during yesterdays sail (Thursday 2nd May) She was an exact replica of the French Warship "HARMIONE"
She was completed in 2014 after 10 years in the making & she moored up just outside Newtown Harbour whilst waiting for the tide to turn. She was struggling to make headway against the 7 knot tide in the force 2 / 3 wind at the time.
I have a very nice photo of her, which I was hoping to post. However I've not yet worked out if thats possible?
