There are many boys and girls who, despite having some sort of physical or mental disability, do not ignore the fact that they are still children and spend their leisure hours engaged in sport, play, competition and sharing time with friends. They also have the desire to fully enjoy their childhood and engage in activities that other children do without any difficulty.

This is the case of boys and girls with disabilities who engage in adapted sailing. Contact with the sea, nature and having fun with friends are experiences that enhance the lives of both the children themselves and their families, who see them able to enjoy unforgettable experiences thanks to the efforts and dedication of all their most loved ones

Our goals are:

  • Work towards the social integration of people with disabilities through sport, and particularly, through water sports
  • Raise awareness among the population of the different circumstances of children with disabilities and their families
  • Fundamentally, promote the sport of sailing among boys and girls with disabilities who have not yet had access to this sport
