Able Sail Toronto relieves conditions associated with a physical disability by providing sailing programs facilities in a safe environment.

Able Sail Toronto


Able Sail Toronto is a sailing club run by people who live with disabilities themselves.

Able Sail Toronto is dedicated to providing people living with a disability the opportunity to enjoy sailing. We know from experience the health and social benefits that adults, youth and children with disabilities can gain from sailing. Able Sail Toronto exists to enable access to sport and healthy activities, particularly for people living on a fixed income as many of our members do. Sailing is a versatile sport that easily adapts to the needs of people with physical disabilities and it levels the playing field. We strive to give our members a sense of independence, pride and self-sufficiency. 

How does it work?

We provide specially-designed sailboats, docks and all the specialized equipment necessary for people with limited mobility, dexterity, sensation and strength to be able to get in a sailboat and go sailing. Our goal is to enable a sense of independence and self-sufficiency.

Participants sail for pleasure, competition and to socialize. Typical activities are pleasure sails, sailing lessons, race competitions and social events.

Able Sail Toronto depends on the support of private, public and corporate donations. Funds donated are used to purchase and maintain the adapted sailboats as well as other equipment. They also allow us to subsidize the sailing program.
