Accessible Sailing for those with disabilities

We can get you on the water!

At Charlotte Harbor Community Sailing Center, we have a pair of Martin 16’s and a few 2.4 mR sailboats rigged to be sailed by sailors with disabilities. The Martin is a two-place trainer and the 2.4 is a tiny racer, both great fun to sail.

After the 2012 IDFS Disabled Sailing World Championships were held in Charlotte Harbor, The Sailing Center got some of the special floating docks designed to accept hoists for lifting sailors from wheelchairs into the boats.
 

Out on the water, we all have the same freedom of movement. The wheelchair may be waiting back on the dock, but sailing is freedom!
