Success Sailing                       

A Unified Team Approach Teaching Sailing to athletes with Intellectual Disabilities.  The goal is to introduce sailing as a recreational activity while instilling a passion for the sport whereby the participants grow to a point where they consider themselves “sailors”.  We hope someday to align our program with Special Olympics.  Until such time this program will lay the groundwork towards developing sailors.

Participant Guidelines:

  • Ages 14+
  • Capable of swimming with a lifejacket on
  • Able to verbally communicate with teammate when mentor-coach is provided.
  • Students with the fitness, agility, and comfort in and around water will discover success quickly

Instructor led sessions with mentor-coaches sailing with students 1-on-1


Sundays, 3:00 PM-5:00 PM

January 14, 28 ; February 4, 11; March 3, 17

Coaches-mentors will be provided, unless you bring your own “sailing buddy”.

Participants may bring their buddy to serve as a coach-mentor and the "Buddy" will receive free sailing instruction along with the participant.          The Buddy must commit to all sessions within the Season.

Coach-mentor Prerequisites (when bringing your own buddy):

  • Capable of swimming with a lifejacket on while keeping the participant calm
  • Able to effectively communicate with participant under stressful situations
  • Capable of emotionally handling a capsize recovery drill
  • Capable of physically climbing into the boat from the water after a capsize
  • Capable of physically assisting the participant out of the water back into the boat  

The program fee includes 6-weeks of instruction.  Pricing is the same whether you attend or not.  Sailing is always weather permitting.    The lesson is rain or shine with shore-based activities when the weather does not permit sailing.  Decisions to sail or not to sail may vary with the student-sailor and the mentor-coach.
