A sailing opportunity for people with a disability or who require additional support. Lochore Meadows is an RYA Centre of Excellence for Sailability Sailing. It is usually useful to arrange a site visit before the sailing session to check the facilities and decide which one of the boats is best suited to the sailor. At this stage we can also check any hoisting or transfer requirements.
On the sailing day we will have the right boat and equipment ready for you and the session usually last for about 1 hour on the water or whatever is appropriate.
Please contact the centre to discuss your requirements and check availability.
