Keelboat Activities

We aim to provide a variety of activities for disabled sailors throughout the year. During the sailing season there are opportunities for weekly sailing with the Keelboat section of EAST.

Training is available for members to gain RYA qualifications.

In addition we have a social programme that runs throughout the year. Details of the Social events will be found on the Calendar.
