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.
