What is Able Sail?
For persons with a disability, the sense of freedom and independence associated with sailing is unrivalled. Sailing is one activity where, because of adaptive technology, even people with severe physical limitations can participate equally with able-bodied persons. Sailing enables those with disabilities to enrich their lives and build confidence in a way no other similar activity can.
Disabled sailing programs provide empowerment, motivation and quality of life for people with physical disabilities.
