ILRC Able Sail is a not for profit summer program offering sailing opportunities for people with disabilities of all ages. Able Sail provides people with the opportunity to leave any physical restrictions behind, and enjoy the freedom of sailing in a safe accessible environment. We have a fleet of Martin 16 Sailboats which are untippable, and unsinkable. They have automatic maneuvering system including Joystick, or sip and puff. We also have a lift and transfer device for easy access into and out of the boats. We operate out of Fort Whyte Alive, and it is completely accessible. We tailor your experience to meet the needs of the individual. Some of the groups that have sailed with us in the past are Senior Centres, Day camps, Children's Rehab Centre, and many others.
