Our group is made up of people with learning disabilities and additional needs. We have enjoyed two wonderful seasons of sailing, which everyone has enjoyed. One of our group members is currently learning to sail the boat herself with teaching support and guidance from a volunteer, whilst others are enjoying sailing with buddy sailors and benefitting from the therapeutic experience of sailing. The environment is friendly and extremely well organised which adds to the overall positive experience for the sailors.
CVSS membership is kept at a cost that our group members can afford, which helps make the activity more accessible for people. Our staffing team also benefitted from the CVSS training day, which was not only informative but fun with a lovely lunch!
CVSS makes sailing accessible to people with disabilities which as a service we value. We are extremely grateful and proud to be CVSS members.
