PHUKET: Disabled Sailing Thailand, a not-for-profit sailing programme that supports and promotes accessibility to sailing for people with disabilities, is seeking support in bringing four of the S\V14 boats – sailing boats designed specifically for use by people with disabilities – to Phuket.

 

Disabled Sailing Thailand have an established base in Chonburi and Ocean Marina Yacht Club who recently purchased eight S\V14s and are creating a regular sailing programme for people with disabilities who wish to experience the freedom and empowerment of sailing.

 

The organisers are now looking to establish a base in Phuket and a para sailing program with a fleet of S\V14s, and are inviting any business or individuals who wish to support the programme to contact them.
