Sailing - Aberdeenshire Sailing Trust

Our disability sessions are starting back up, with funding support at Knockburn Loch from the Essentia Foundation, and at Peterhead with Northconnect, both administered by Foundation Scotland.

We aren’t yet allowed to have instructors on board the same boats as participants because of distancing, but we can run very simple low key sessions in singlehander dinghies, and we can have family members support sailors on board the boat instead.

Full dates & online booking available here:   Disability Sailing Clubs — Aberdeenshire Sailing Trust

 

Summer season: 

Peterhead, Thursday evenings (June – end August) 

Knockburn Loch, Sunday late afternoons

 

At Peterhead, we have a special boat, a Hansa which suits people with mobility restrictions including wheelchair users. 

We also incorporate people with disabilities into our standard sailing sessions wherever possible.   RYA courses are available.
