    Registration for this event opens 1 month in advance. 

    Thank you for your interest in Accessible Sailing Saturdays. This is a no-cost, volunteer-run program that allows individuals with disabilities to experience the freedom of sailing and help them learn to sail.

    Sailors come to the Downtown Sailing Center (DSC) and are coached and often accompanied by a tireless group of volunteers, friends and family.

    Our two boat choices are "Access Dinghy" and "Sonar Keelboat." The Access Dinghy is a small two person sailboat that is specifically made for people with limited mobility. They are easy to sail and can be sailed solo, with a family member or friend, or a DSC volunteer sailing buddy. 

    When you register to sail, please pick the type of boat and the session, either Session 1- 10am, or session 2 - 11am. If you are unsure which boat you would like to sail, just pick a session and indicate when you register that you are unsure of your boat selection. We will assign you a boat based on space and availability. The DSC strives to give everyone the opportunity to sail, but we have a limited number of boats and volunteers, so occasionally we may have to make small changes to boat assignments.

    Note: If you decide that you want to switch the type of boat to sail after registering, please let the staff know the morning of the event and we will try to accommodate this change. 


    We welcome participants to attend as many weeks as they are able, but we ask for participants to remember that space is limited and we want to help as many people as possible.

    If you have further questions about the Access-ability Program, please feel free to contact Stuart via stuart@downtownsailing.org

    'Ya Gotta Regatta' 2017 Participant Registration!

    You've sailed all summer, either through our Access-ability Saturdays & Sundays or through one of our Outreach Events. Now it's time to strut your stuff and show off your racing skills in our Annual 'Ya Gotta Regatta'. 

    Unlike our regular access-ability events, we will be running sailboat races in three different sessions.  We will have 2 access dinghy races and one race in our larger boats, sonars and J22s. 

    The Schedule for the day is as follows:  

    10AM-11AM: Dinghy Race 1 

    11AM-12PM: Dinghy Race 2

    11AM-12PM: Sonar/J22 Race

    11:30-12:45: Lunch

    1:00-1:15: Awards Ceremony

    1:30: Event wrap up 

    We will have fun carnival games during the morning for anyone waiting under the pavilion and for participants who get off the water early. 

    As a reminder, our two boat choices are "Access Dinghy" and "Sonar / J22 Keelboat." The Access Dinghies are our small 2 person boats, good for those who lack trunk support or need to be transferred by one of our Hoyer lifts. You can sail solo, with a friend or family member or with a volunteer sailing buddy. 

    The Sonars are our larger 24ft boats. The J22's are similar, they just have a smaller area to sit, so they are better for individuals with strong trunk support. All of our keelboats have a volunteer skipper and crew member aboard to sail the boat. You are certainly welcome to join in and help steer or adjust the sails. The larger boats are good for families or groups with more than 2 people. 

    When registering please pick your preferred boat and sailing time and list any additional accommodations you might require, such as a hoyer lift transfer.
