At Gosford Sailing Club
Sailability NSW had its beginnings at Gosford in March 1995, when Denis Critchley and other sailors with disabilities, envisaged how they could be integrated into the broader sailing community.The dream became a reality for the group when they started sailing yachts off Denis’ private pier.The Gosford sailors would later agree to relinquish the name ‘Sailability NSW’, so that a state-wide umbrella organisation could develop under that name.
Sailability Gosford begins its new sailing season on the morning of the 4th of October at the Gosford Sailing club.
Sailability Gosford provides opportunities for people with disabilities to enjoy sailing on Brisbane Waters. Sailing will continue from this date on Tuesdays and Thursdays until mid-December conditions permitting. Please check out www.sailabilitygosford.org for more information and to express interest in joining as a sailor or volunteer. No sailing experience is required.
Children, youth and adults with a wide array of disabilities can experience the pleasure of sailing.
Disabled sailors across Australia’s Central Coast have the opportunity to sail upon Brisbane Water regardless of skill level.
The sailboats are skippered by experienced volunteer sailors. All sailboats are monitored from a radio equipped powerboat while underway.
