Dart Sailability exists to encourage anyone with a disability to take part and enjoy the sport of sailing on the river Dart. Purpose built boats, which can be adapted to meet the needs of individual sailors are available to enable disabled people to get afloat. A hoist is available to safely lift wheelchair users into the boats.

We welcome new members with any disability, please go to the Information for Sailors page or Contact Us if you have any questions.

We are located on the Kingswear side of the beautiful River Dart at Noss on Dart Marina. At Dart Sailability you can have a leisurely cruise on the river, learn to sail, take part in competitive racing or just enjoy good company and a cup of coffee.

Come along on a Tuesday or Saturday for a free taster session.

Today's Sailing

Saturday 24th September

Weather forecast looks good for the morning with a southerly breeze, Its the BMAD access race up to the Anchor Stone, so come for the last Access session of the season,

Will all sailors wishing to take part please arrive early, we want to start the race by 10 .15 so need to be on the water by 10.00.

Thisi s because we want to take all the access boats out of the water on the high tide at 12.30 so really need all sailors back on shore by 12.15 latest.

Appreciated if volunteers could also arrive a little earlier and also help with getting the boats into the green shed at end of session ( May need Wellies)
