Did the Paralympics inspire you to be more active? Or are you looking for a new outdoors activity where everyone is equal.

Northampton Sailability is hosting its annual open day on Saturday, August 3, at its base at Pitsford reservoir. Everyone is welcome and you can have a go at sailing for free from 10am to 3pm.

Northampton Sailability is an established RYA Sailability site providing opportunities for disabled people to learn to sail and sail regularly as part of the national Sailability programme run by the sport’s national governing body, the RYA.

The club has a fleet of boats designed especially for disabled sailors, and no previous sailing experience is necessary, just bring a sense of adventure and fun.

RYA Sailability is renowned for the strength of its volunteers so if you have got time to offer to enable others to get afloat then come along and find out how you could get involved. You never need to have stepped into a boat in your life.

Refreshments will be available throughout the day with strawberries and Pimms and fruit punch at lunchtime. No booking is required.

Northampton Sailability is a recognised RYA Training Centre, and about 200 people regularly sail with the club. For more details visit
