Providing sailing opportunities for disabled young adults within a supportive and safe environment.
WOW was established to help young adults with disabilities and their families/carers to share positive experiences and time together whilst also being active, learning how to sail and enjoying life on the water! The aim is to allow young people to enjoy sailing to the best of their abilities no matter what their disability, within a supportive, fun and safe environment. Carers and parents are encouraged to sail giving a great chance to interact and share the enjoyment of sailingWhy the community needs us
WOW is actively engaging with other local disability groups and Plymouth City Council encouraging young adults to come sailing the benefits that sailing could give them. Our impact on the community
WOW gives young adults of any disability the chance to access Plymouth Sound and the experiences that sailing can provide whether it is learning how to sail to just getting out on the water and having fun. Sailing can give the sense of freedom, contribution as a team and learn new skills.

Helms will be required to qualified to minimum RYA Level 2 keelboat/dinghy and be experienced sailors, although training can be provided. All volunteers will be required to be CRB checked.
