    Thank you for volunteering for the DSC's Access-ability Saturday sailing sessions. They cannot be run without volunteer support and commitment, and we truly appreciate you!

    The day will begin promptly at 10:00 AM to muster, set up, rig and splash the Hansa Access Dinghies, and rig keelboats. Sailing participants will arrive at 11:00AM and sail until approximately 1:00 PM. The event will finish by 1:30PM.

    Please note the later start time for Fall events!

    The DSC needs volunteers to fill the following positions:
    • Set up, check in and escort participant sailors to the docks
    • Rig (and de-rig) Hansa Access Dinghies
    • Sonar 23 and  Freedom 20 Skippers 
    • Sonar 23 and Freedom 20 crew
    • Safety boat operators/coaches
    • Hoyer lift transfer assistance (training is required)

    If you have any further questions about this program, please email rena@downtownsailing.org.

    Again, thank you for your commitment to providing adaptive Sailors an opportunity to have access to sailing!

    This is a no-cost, volunteer-run program that allows individuals with disabilities to experience the freedom of sailing and learn to sail.

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

    Check in starts at 10:45 am, and sailing time will be from 11:00am until 1:00pm.

    The boats we offer:

    • Hansa Access 303 Dinghy- a one- to two-person sailboat specifically designed for people with limited mobility or require trunk support. They are easy to sail, perfect for learning and can be sailed solo, or with a family member or friend. You will receive coaching assistance on the water from a power boat. 
    • Freedom 20 keelboat-this boat is recommended for those who require trunk support and stability.  You will sail with a skipper and 1 crew, and we encourage you to take a turn at the helm!
    • Sonar 23 keelboat-this boat is easily adapted and boasts a roomy cockpit for comfort. You will sail with a skipper and 1 crew, and we encourage you to haul a line or two and take a turn at the helm!

    Hoyer lift transfer assistance is available for boarding/disembarking any of our boats. We will provide all safety equipment, including life jackets.

    If you have further questions about the Access-ability Program, or to cancel, please contact Rena at rena@downtownsailing.org.
