Welcome

Sailability Toronto operates from our own jetty and premises, beside Toronto Amateur Sailing Club at Victory Parade, Toronto.

We have eight Access 303 dinghies, four 2.3 dinghies (one a single) and two safety boats. We also provide life jackets to everyone who sails.

Our objective is to provide the facilities and personnel to make sailing available to the people with a disability in the region we serve; to do so safely and to give them an enjoyable sailing experience. A number of our people with disabilities sail by themselves, but in the majority of cases volunteer sailors take our clients sailing. We serve both children (from special needs schools) and adults with disabilities.

We have cranes on our pontoon to winch wheelchair bound, or clients with movement difficulties into and out of the dinghies.

Many of our volunteers are experienced sailors, but we also have non-sailing personnel on-shore to help schedule our program and to help load and unload our clients as needed. A safety boat is always on the water. We regard both our sailing personnel and on-shore personnel as being equally important to the smooth and successful operation of our program.

Our volunteers range in age from teenagers to retirees, with the big majority being in the latter category.

We are currently looking for more volunteers and whilst experience in sailing and caring for people with disabilities is desirable, the attributes that we regard as most important are a caring, understanding and patient attitude to those we serve. Our volunteers find their efforts rewarding – you will find it likewise. If you wish to volunteer contact our President by phone or any of the contact personnel by email.
