Sailing is a good activity as it is essential to have good teamwork and to stay disciplined to ensure the boat sails well, this gives the opportunity to learn how to cooperate with others and develop social and communication skills.

A lot of sailing clubs have specialised sailing boats, some have more supportive seating that helps to keep the sailor in the centre of the boat. This is essential for participants with limited mobility as it helps to keep them stable in the water. Some boats have a heavy keel which means that it cannot capsize.

Some of the boats can be sailed by two or more people meaning it can be enjoyed with friends and family.

Most sailing clubs will first require you to sail with an instructor who will explain the basics of sailing and teach you what to do, when they deem that you are competent enough they will let you sail solo if you wish.
