Sailing for people with disabilities
CVSS is a registered charity run entirely by volunteers
We make sailing accessible, inexpensive and FUN for people with disabilities of all ages
We do this using special boats and equipment and having a positive approach:
"You want to sail - let's work out how you can do so safely"
Regrettably, we are unable to accept new membership applications
as our sailing sessions are now fully booked
CVSS is a local charity. We provide sailing and katakanuing for people of all ages with various disabilities in Bury Lake, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. We are staffed entirely by volunteers who enjoy the social experience, the friendship, the pleasure of sailing but most importantly - the rewards of helping others. CVSS is based at the Rickmansworth Aquadrome and has been since March of 2001.
We share facilities with the Rickmansworth-based Bury Lake Young Mariners (BLYM). This enables activities for both organisations to thrive.
We are part of 'Sailability' the RYA’s national programme enabling people with disabilities to try sailing and take part regularly. RYA is the governing body for sailing in the UK.
