What could be better than getting out into the fresh air and enabling our disabled members (sailors) to enjoy the wonderful sport of sailing? Add a great bunch of people, a beautiful location like Spinnaker Lake, and you have the makings of a fantastic day out. This is what our volunteers experience throughout the season.
Being a volunteer with New Forest & District Sailability (NFDS) is a rewarding, satisfying and fun experience. You don't have to be able to sail, but if you want to learn we can teach you. We need volunteers for a whole range of duties including:
Meeting and greeting our disabled members, who we refer to as sailors
Fitting sailors with buoyancy aids
Chatting with our sailors and making them feel part of the team
Rigging and de-rigging boats
Helping our sailors into and out of boats
Crewing and helming for our sailors
Driving the power boat

We welcome people from all backgrounds and walks of life, those with a disability, and people who are able-bodied but want to do something worthwhile.
Our volunteers and sailors make our club the success that it is so if you would like to become a volunteer click here for an application form. You can leave your completed form at reception or copy and send via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
