Oxford Sailability

Sailing for the disabled​

Oxford Sailability runs from April to October each year on a Tuesday evening. It starts at about 5pm and finishes up to half an hour before sunset.

It is RYA affiliated, and an affiliated club of Oxford Sailing club. We are a very friendly club entirely run by a small group of volunteers.

Sailors with all disabilities are welcome to come along and try sailing, it doesn't matter if you have years of experience or none at all, we will take you through everything. We have 3 types of boat available so you can sail in the one best for you. 

You can enjoy leisure sailing, and competitive sailing in Sailability Regattas if you are interested.

Find out more:

The buttons below will allow you to download information sheets for sailors or helpers (volunteers). These will give you an idea of what to do if you are new, how the sessions run and the facilities available.

We love to hear from those who would like to help as well as those who would like to sail. To contact us please use the form below, or call 07948353887 and leave a message.​ We hope to see you soon.

Hello everyone

Sailability is on tonight.

The forecast is for light winds and a bit of rain, so good for a potter or drift about in wet weather gear.

The Joyce wont be going out Im afraid, we are waiting for its new sails and it still needs a test sail before we can take passengers again.

See you soon!

Sadly we have to say its the end of the season now.

We really hope everyone enjoyed all their sailing time this year, its been great to see regulars and to welcome new sailors and helpers too. Huge thanks to all the helpers who come along whether you are a regular or can only make a few occasions, we couldnt make it work without you.

See you all again next year!

Sailability is on but may have to be called off at the last minute Im afraid. This morning it looked breezy but fine, however it is continuing to be a lot more breezy than the forecast.

The key helpers will make the call when they get to Farmoor and an email to all members will be sent again after that for anyone thinking of coming but not sure.

For those of you who do come please just bear in mind it might not go ahead.

We were very lucky to have perfect sailing conditions for the 16 boats that took part, including 3 from Oxford. Whether it was taking home a trophy or taking part in their first event, a great day was had by all.
