Activities for Disabled People
The AHOY is an RYA (Royal Yachting Association) Sailability Centre and our facilities are viewed as a centre of excellence by the RYA and have complete wheelchair access. We offer the full range of RYA Sailability courses and qualifications. Sailability volunteers enjoy integrated water-based activities whilst being able to learn new skills in a manner and speed appropiate to the individual. Sessions are always great fun whilst progressing to achieve the RYA Sailability, Bronze, Silver & Gold Awards.
The charity owns a number of boats that are adapted to enable disabled users to sail or row them, but we also have a very special craft: ‘The AHOY Freedom’. She was commissioned specifically by us for a mixed ability crew with state of the art technology to allow disabled crew to steer and skipper her.
