We are a sailing program for anyone with a disability, and recognize that everybody’s needs vary. Recreation sailing is perfect for individuals looking for a new leisure pursuit. Recreational sailing sessions will allow the individual to experience the environment of the water (the wind, the waves, the sun and the wildlife), while developing their sailing skills with as much or as little sailing instruction as they would like.
Our uniquely designed boats are safe, comfortable and can be customized to the seating and support needs of the individual. Sailors are partnered with an experienced companion sailor. From kids, to the aging, recreational sailing offers something for everyone!
Group Sails (Charter)
Group Sails are available for groups of sailors looking to experience a sailing outing together. Group sails are perfect for individuals living in a home share program, a group home, attending a summer camp together, or simply carpooling to recreational sailing. Group sails are conducted in our Sonar Keel Boats , and we may accommodate up to 3-4 sailors at a time (numbers may vary on the size and seating needs of the sailors).
Contact the Head Instructor to find out how you may book a group sail.
Sail with Friends
This year we will be running group sail every Friday for program members. Simply sign up with the head instructor and we will assign you to a Sonar with other DSA members. We hope this will provide an opportunity for members to get to know each other better and hopefully form lasting friendships. Experience on our Sonar fleet is not a requirement as each both will have a volunteer or instructor onboard.
Contact the Head Instructor to find out how you may book a spot.
