SAILING is one of Britain's most successful Olympic sports and one of the most accessible for people with a disability.
The sport has seen huge investment by the RYA and Sport England in the last four years and many clubs have comfortable lounges, dedicated training rooms and up-to-date changing rooms, plus there are hundreds of boats available in clubs across the region for children and adults to learn to sail.
May is also National Watersports month and Carsington Sport and Leisure has a variety of events on offer, including three have-a-go activities on May 18 as part of the RYA's Push the Boat Out weekend.
Each session lasts an hour and costs £10. All that is needed is a change of clothes, soft-soled shoes and a towel – the centre will provide everything else. To find out more, go to www.carsingtonwater.com.
