We have been awarded a grant from the Millenium Stadium fund which has enabled us to purchase

3 Hansa 203 dinghies ( 2 x 203 S  Single Seaters and 1 x 203 Breeze two person).

These are ideal for small adult or juniors compared to the 303’s we currently use.

access-dinghies The whole Access dinghy range is designed for the use of people with disabilities.  Any other family member, friend or carer that wishes to sail in the same fleet or possibly race with the disabled person will also find the Access dinghies easy and great fun to sail.  Steering is by a manual joystick located in front of the helm, moving it to the left to go left and to the right to go right  . The boats are so simple to operate that almost anyone can helm them.   All maneuvering is carried out from the comfort of a hammock seat, making it the most comfortable dinghy available and is particularly suited to anyone who for any reason has limited mobility.
We are fortunate to have a range of specialist equipment to provide access for sailors with limited mobility.  The clubhouse has full disabled facilities.  We also have:-

  • The floating pontoon allows dry access for those able to walk to their boat
  • The “wheelie” boat provides roll-on, roll-off wheelchair access to the pontoon
  • The hoist  allows sailors to be safely moved directly from a wheelchair into a dinghy.
