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. 

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.
