Sailability Pittwater operates our regular program of Recreational Sailing, from Rowland Reserve,
We aim to provide a sailing experience for people of all ages and abilities, through recreational
sailing. Those who
wish to sail competotivly will be directed to our sister branch Sailability Crystal Bay, out of
Sailability Pittwater is a part of Sailability NSW (Inc), which in turn is part of the
worldwide Sailability organisation
Sailability Pittwater We operate from September to May each year with about 4 weeks break in Dec / Jan
when people are very busy. There are 2
days each fortnight that we sail at Rowland Reserve, Wednesdays from 9am till 2pm and Saturdays 9am
till 2pm. Light
refreshments are provided but not lunch.
For these programs we have a friendly group of volunteers, many of whom are experienced sailors, who
take a range of
persons with a disability for recreational sailing. We do offer basic sail training for people with
a disability, and
aim to give our sailors as much control of the boats as they can manage.
Come down and have a look, you don’t need to be a sailor, just a willingness to help
others, particularly those with a disability
Sailability Pittwater are always looking for volunteers to train in Rescue Boat operation, or
rig the boats at the beginning of a
sailing day, or put them away at the end of the day.We also need volunteers to assist people in and out
of the boats, as
well as sail with people in our two-seaters.
Sailability cannot function without a dedicated and skilled group of volunteers, as we are fully
self- funded, not for
profit organisation. It is some of the most satisfying volunteering work around, especially if you
enjoy the outdoors.
At Rowland Reserve we use mainly Access 303 dinghies, supplemented with an Electric Access 2.3 and
Access Breeze 2.3s. The range of Hansa
sailcraft were originally designed to appeal
to that huge majority of the world’s population who would love to have a go at sailing, but find it too
uninviting to do so To find out more
