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.
