2021 Season - STOP PRESS

Although Sailability has suspended all activity because of the Covid rules, We hope that we can restart sailing in July. Although the government has eased the restrictions on sports, including sailing, unfortunately the Social Distancing rules mean that it is impossible for us to support disabled sailing before then. Clearly the situation and current rules will be monitored on an ongoing basis. Please keep checking here and on Facebook for news.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are interested in sailing or being involved when we do resume.

What is Sailability

Sailability is the part of the Royal Yachting Association which organises sailing for anybody with any disability. It has branches around the country and encourages sailing at all levels from the absolute beginner to those who represent their country at the Paralympics. The aim is to provide enjoyment and freedom on the water.

Hykeham Sailability operates at the Hykeham Sailing Club, on Apex Lake in North Hykeham, Lincoln

Who can take part?

We welcome anybody with any disability, with or without any sailing experience. Our RYA qualified Instructors can teach you the ropes and give you the confidence to sail by yourself, can take you through different qualifications, can improve your racing techniques, or they can just sail the boat while you enjoy the ride. Get in touch with us and tell us what you’d like to do.


We welcome volunteers from all walks of life. The majority of our volunteers are not sailors. We will teach you everything you need to know to take part in an extremely rewarding pastime. See our volunteers page for more detail.
