The Academy is fortunate to have three RS Venture Connect dinghies as well as four Hansa 303’s.

These boats are nominated by the sport’s governing body, World Sailing, as being the most suitable equipment for disability sailing.

We have also been fortunate to have the services of Mr. Bob Bailey and his team who have many years’ experience of sailing for the disabled.
He has been available to train the Academy instructors who are now working with the disabled adults and children of Antigua on a weekly basis.

Lessons or sailing experiences are available to visiting people who are differently-abled.

It is impossible to overstate the delight that the wholly new experience of sailing can bring to the lives of disabled sailors. In many cases, they will eventually learn to sail the boats by themselves, but, even those who cannot, experience a very real pleasure on being out on the water and the sense of adventure that it can bring to their lives.
