After a long wait, Sailability will return on Thursday, November 3, at the Princess Royal Sailing Club.

Sailability is an initiative run by the PRSC which offers people of all abilities the opportunity to sail regardless of their level of ability, skill or personal circumstances on Thursday and Saturday mornings.

The Thursday sessions see up to five yachts with experienced skippers and crews taking participants and their supporters for a sail around the harbour for roughly an hour.

The club rescue boat is also available for those who don’t wish to sail.

Saturdays are slightly different where participants are able to sail in the specially designed Hansa yachts which can be sailed solo or with two up.

With enough experience in these wonderful little sailing boats, skippers may enter State championships and intra-club competitions.

There is to be an induction day for old and prospective volunteers on Thursday, October 27 from 9am to noon.

Junior training courses begin on Saturday, October 29, between 9am and noon.
