Access BOOM

The Access BOOM Mobile is a mobile sailing school for children with disabilities. This mobile uses specially designed boats called Access Dinghy’s that give people with even a high level of physical or cognitive disability the opportunity to sail independently, and safely. This program is about fun, independence and learning. To see if the Access BOOM Mobile is visiting your community this summer click here. If your club or organization is interested in hosting the Access BOOM Mobile this summer check out BOOM

 

Able Sail Mobile

If your club or organization is thinking about starting an accessible sailing program, let us bring our Able Sail Mobile to you. An Ontario Sailing staff member or volunteer will bring an accessible sailboat to your club for a day so that you can see for yourself the rewards of offering an Able Sail Program first hand.

 

Boat Loan Program

If your club is in the process of starting an Able Sail Program, but do not have the boats that you need to get people on the water, we might be able to help. Ontario Sailing has a limited number of Access Dinghy’s, and Martin 16 sloops that we loan or lease to clubs on a 1 or 2-year bases. Please complete the application form and return it to Ontario Sailing by mail or fax.

 

Competitive Sailing

Each year several clubs in Ontario host regattas and training clinics for sailors with disabilities competing in the Martin 16 or Access Dinghy Class. Check out the Racing page for a complete list of regattas and training clinics.
