Windsurfing For The Disabled – More Inspiring And Accessible Than Ever

If someone with a disability wanted to learn to sail in this country the reaction of most people in the watersports business would be: ‘No worries!’

Sailability is a mainstream RYA grassroots sailing programme, while the British Sailing Team is fully inclusive for its Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

But windsurfing?

People still view the accessibility of windsurfing as a little different.

Maybe it’s because of windsurfing’s more physical nature, compared to the perception of sailing being a more sedate ‘sitting down’ sport. Whatever it is, windsurfing doesn’t yet have the same status within disability sport as sailing.

Yet, scratch the surface a little and you find there is actually some healthy windsurfing activity being run for people with disabilities nationwide.
