“Sailing is one of the very few sports in which able-bodied sailors and disabled sailors can participate on equal terms.

Or people who can feel and hear but have no sight, or of sailing a boat at speed even though they can’t walk, or of joining in a sport where deafness doesn’t matter.

Sailability continues to encourage and support people with disabilities to take up the sport and facilitate sites to develop sailing opportunities.” RYA website

Carnavon School visit 12th June

A cold East/ North Easterly wind was blowing across the lake as the first bunch of children, parent helpers and teachers arrived on Friday. Fitted with life jackets and after a Safety talk they set out to enjoy activities on the water.

A fresh bunch arrived at midday. By then the sun had come through and the wind was moderating.

The lake sparkled. Throughout the day it rang to the sound of some excited and enthusiastic children. To see them setting out in an Oppie never having been in a boat before is often a delight. Some came away wanting a boat, others clearly had a sense of achievement including some who were more reluctant to go in a boat.

Thanks to all who helped. This was a long and busy day.
