Help this club make sailing accessible to all

Support volunteers needed for Burghfield Sailing Club – Sailability Group in RG7

ThumbnailHandlerSail LD 2010 regatta

Our aim is to get disabled people on the water (preferably in boats).
We would welcome anyone who could:

  • help with administration
  • help with making teas and coffees
  • help launch and recover boats
  • help as crew or helms in boats
  • help with publicity and fund raising

The different roles have varied levels of staying dry and of sociability.

It is very rewarding to see how much pleasure we provide for so many people and the volunteer team is very sociable and fun to be with.

If you can help a little or a lot we would love to see you.
