Sailability Activities

Goolwa Regatta Yacht Club Sailability has eight Hansa Class 303 two person dinghies and two Liberty Class single person dinghies, these are available for sailors to enjoy the sport of sailing.

In addition there is a Cole 19ft Daysailor which is used on sailing days as a training vessel and as a competitive yacht in Friday night Twilight racing.

Two cranes are used on the Sailability jetty to assist sailors with transfers in and out of boats.  

Monthly sailing days are well attended with sailors of all ages participating, together with their families and carers.  
Lunch is available for a small charge and a valuable social event is enjoyed by everyone.


Volunteers

Programs such as Sailability could not exist without the dedicated support of volunteers.  It is a very rewarding activity and a wonderful opportunity to share your time and skills with some very enthusiastic and adventurous people.  If you would like to join Sailability as a volunteer, or come and see what it is all about, please contact any of the Sailability committee team.
