Nothing stops our sailors!

AQVA offers sailing to children and adults with mobility impairments. Every summer over 200 people of all ages enjoy the liberating experience of leaving their wheelchair or other mobility aid on the dock and spending time on the water in a sailboat adapted to their needs.  

Some of our sailors have been living with a physical or sensory disability since birth. Others have acquired a mobility impairment following an accident or a stroke. Still others are dealing with degenerative diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, ALS or muscular dystrophy.  Most of our sailors are new to the sport however many have previous experience and are thrilled to discover that they can continue to go sailing in spite of their disability.
