Able Sail

Atlantic Challenge Canada is proud to be a founding sponsor of a local Able Sail program for youth and adults with mobility impairments. Through determination and hard work of volunteers and the use of a 20’ Freedom Independence originally donated to Atlantic Challenge, the Able Sailing program began on Georgian Bay in 2001.

This specially equipped sailboat is designed to provide a safe environment for participants with disabilities where they may learn how to sail with qualified staff. The program, is part of a larger group of Able Sail programs throughout Ontario and Canada using a variety of boats.
