About This Charity
DSAO's Mission is to enable Ontarians with disabilities to experience therapeutic, recreational and social rehabilitation through the freedom and independence of sailing.
About Our Charity
DSAO is dedicated to providing accessible sailing to disabled members of our community. We recognize the importance of an inclusive environment, as fostering positive change through social integration is another key objective of our club. Located in Toronto's Harbourfront, we offer recreational sailing, Sail Canada certified learn-to-sail courses, sailing regattas, weekly race nights, and Sail Around the Island events. Our specially designed Martin 16 sailboats enable a person with a disability to sail solo or with a sailing companion. Even hi-level quadriplegics can sail safely and independently in our sailboats using electronic sip'n'puff system where the sailor can control the sailboat sails and steering with their mouth by sipping and puffing into straws. Our Sonar keelboats are ideal for those who like a recreational sail with a group. Our program relies on donations to keep afloat. It is our sponsors and our committed volunteers who contribute thousands of hours of work a season that make it possible for us to continue to provide accessible sailing for our 100+ members.
