Sail With Us!
Sailing is a powerful way for people to push their limits and capture independence and freedom. The DSC's docks are equipped with accessible ramps, Hoyer lifts and plenty of shaded space. We offer three types of accessible sailboats: the Hansa Access 303, a one- or two-person non-capsizable dinghy that can be sailed by almost anyone, the Sonar 23 keelboat, and the Freedom 20.
Due to concerns for COVID-19, we are offering sailing on Hansa Access dinghies and the Freedom Keelboats only.
A Skipper and 1 crew are provided for the Freedom 20s, and we have space for only 2 members of the same household per boat. We are unable to provide sailing buddies for the Hansa Access dinghies this year, so we ask you to please bring along a family member/caregiver to help you sail.
This year, we offer sailing instruction before sailing!
**Everyone who wishes to participate must wear a mask at all times
while on campus and on the docks.**
Our Adaptive program is almost entirely run by volunteers, and we welcome all types of help from greeters and escorts, to those who can rig the Hansa Access Dinghies.
Due to concerns for COVID-19, we are unable to provide sailing buddies, but instead ask participants to bring along a guest if they want to sail with someone.
Sailing experience is not required; just compassion, a willingness to learn, and a desire to have fun!
We offer special discounted rates for organizations or groups of individuals with disabilities. We offer sailing events for groups of 5-35 people. Rates vary from $25/person - $35 depending on the group size and duration of the sail. Please email email@example.com for more information.
