NBS is proud to support Sailability Nelson, enabling disabled Nelsonians to experience the freedom and joy of sailing.
Sailability Nelson is one of ten active clubs across New Zealand, all of whom are part of a worldwide movement. Thanks to the incredible support of the Nelson community they are able to sail from the Nelson Yacht Club every second Sunday.
They provide access to safe sailing to enrich the lives of Nelsonians with an intellectual or physical disability. Through sailing they enable people with disabilities to experience adventure and freedom - encouraging mobility, self-confidence and pride through achievement.
There are currently 25 to 30 sailors who sail in our five fully kitted out small Hansa yachts.
