Spreading the windsurfing word
All of these are just examples of some of the activity going on under the radar, there is plenty more too.
Sarah Cartwright, RYA Disability Development Officer, windsurfer, instructor and coach, admits she is encouraged by the windsurfing community’s ‘we just get on with it’ attitude to disabled students.
She hopes other centres, principals, instructors and individuals with disabilities will realise windsurfing is a viable option for all.
Sarah added: “There is this preconception that if you have any disability you can’t windsurf, but you can.
“Sailability is there to help you whether you are a centre that might like to run windsurfing activity or someone who wants to try the sport for the first time.”
