Lymington sailability

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.

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?

To all involved in making the appropriate adaptions to the running gear of "Ally Cat" (the older blue Windrider trymaran)
Hopefully this will enable me to enjoy another season of thrilling sailing.
I am so very very grateful
Thank you so much.
