Sailability Hong Kong - Making Sailing Accessible to EVERYONE
Founded in 2009 but with our official opening day in 2010, 'Sailability Hong Kong' provides the opportunity for anyone with a disability (physical or intellectual) to learn to sail or have a water based experience. Whether aged 7 or above, we believe that sailing increases self-confidence, independence, responsibility and self-esteem whilst learning and having fun.
To date 2,191 different people with a disability from within the Hong Kong general public have sailed with us. Many come back time and time again.......... We now conduct 3,950 - 4,250 individual sailing lessons weather permitting each year.
in 2016, we introduced new programs to allow more senior sailors to use our facilities as part of their rehabilitation following a major accident and/or illness. in 2019, we have developed programs for the elderly.
You can donate money or volunteer your time / expertise to enhance our sailing programs, build up our 'Support a Sailor' program, or become a Friend of Sailability plus much more.
At Sailability HK we offer our sailors the support they need to face and conquer the many challenges they may experience on and off the water.
Our qualified instructors and volunteers support our sailors to get on the water safely, teach them to sail or enjoy a waterborne experience and hopefully start a new way of life.
Sailing is one of the few sports, in which able bodied sailors and disabled sailors can take part on equal terms.
