Rutland Sailability

We know that if you have a disability your life isn’t as free and easy as you would like it to be.

Outdoor sporting options in particular seem pretty limited.

At Rutland Sailability we can offer you an activity which brings some of the freedom your disability seems to have taken away.

We have been doing this for 20 years and now have well over 200 members. 

We are a registered Charity  (No. 1069540) whose objects are the provision and maintenance of sailing and recreation facilities for the disabled. 

In 2010, in recognition of the work carried out by our volunteers, we were awarded The Queens Award for Voluntary Service.
We are recognised as a Centre of Excellence and Foundation Site by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA).

We operate from Rutland Sailing Club, on the southern shore of Rutland Water (Map),under approved training and operating guidelines set by the RYA and the Sailing Club.
We have no age, ethnic, social, cultural or gender barriers.
We provide training, support and equipment to enable our members to enjoy the challenge of this physical activity in a safe, welcoming and friendly atmosphere.
We also have a strong social side to our club.
Able bodied helpers are equally welcome to join us.

Half of our members are able bodied and without them the club could not operate.
Most of our members were not sailors before they joined us, so why not give it a try yourself?
To find out more have a look at our website.
Join in the fun! You'll be made very welcome
