Poole Sailability

Poole Sailability


A friendly sailing club welcoming anyone with a disability to enjoy sailing in dinghies and keelboats in Poole Harbour. Please note trips are free but there is a membership fee. No sailing experience is necessary., and they aim to accommodate most disabilities, but you should be able to board a boat unaided, or with limited physical assistance. Ideal for novices and experienced sailors alike, and a safety boat accompanies sailors at all times. Buoyancy aids and lifejackets are provided to keep you safe. Sessions lasting approximately 2 hours are held on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings from May to the end of October.
Visit the website for more details.

Toilets with access for people with disabilities are available. Although there is no room to put wheelchairs on our boats, there is plenty of secure storage for a chair or walking aid ashore. There is also a small cafe for drinks and refreshments.
