International 2.4mR keelboat

This single handed keelboat is one of three Paralympic classes and has a very active able-bodied international racing circuit. Most sailing is fully integrated able/disabled and quite simply the best sailor wins!

are on loan to the Sailability groups at Queen Mary Sailng Club and Frensham PondSailing Club. The Charity also supports coaching sessions for the
