Come sailing with us

The Woolverstone Project provides sailing opportunities and tuition for those with disabilities with sailing throughout the year at Alton Water and during the summer months at Woolverstone on the River Orwell.



Volunteers are on hand to take the sailors out on the water, help the sailors in and out of the dinghies and to provide refreshments during the sessions.



Why not come along and see what we do at one of our open sessions on a Monday morning. See the Calendar link for the times we sail.

Sail on Ron Hollington

We are very sorry to learn of the death of one of our founder members and one of the first disabled sailors on the books, Ron Hollington. He sailed with the Project back in the late 1990s sailing the Challengers, before any Access dinghies were acquired. He was certainly a character and always determined and spirited. He would set a great example of always rigging his own boat and then towing it with his powered More »
