About Foyle Sailability

Foyle Sailability is a cross border voluntary organisation which aims to deliver opportunities for sailing and other water-based activities to people with disabilities from across the North West region of Ireland.

We make these sports accessible with the help of specialised equipment, such as a hoist at Foyle Port Marina; accessible boats, such as the Hansa 303; access to the water via pontoons at Foyle Port Marina and Greencastle; and support from trained and qualified volunteers.

We welcome participation from anyone with a disability or who faces severe disadvantage – whether you have any on the water experience or not!

Our events are low cost or free and this year’s event kick off on Wed 10th May 2017 sessions at Foyle Port Marina and every 2 weeks thereafter. 

Please note that these are individual sailing sessions only.  Booking is essential and with all our activity is entirely weather dependent.  Parents/carers must stay onsite during the session. 
To book, please email foylesailability@gmail.com or call Karen on +353 86 3871880.

In the short-term, we are giving people with disabilities the chance to take to the water themselves, with expert help. In the longer-term, we want to offer the kind of support which enables those of us with disabilities to aspire towards the highest levels of sailing or water sport skills. In a Paralympics year, that message is particularly important.
