Sailability at Port Bouvard Yacht Club offers people of all abilities the opportunity to sail regardless of their level of ability, skill or personal circumstances.
The sheltered waters of the Peel/Harvey Estuary provide the perfect base for our very stable Windrider 17 trimarans. These vessels can take up to two participants, their carers and an instructor out into the estuary to enjoy sailing in a safe environment.
