Welcome to the website of the Deaf Sailing UK

The Deaf Sailing UK Club's website provides an overview of the Club and sets out our full programme for the year.

Through an excellent partnership with the Rona Sailing Project (formerly Rona Trust - London Sailing Project), Sussex Yacht Club, Queen Mary Sailing Club, Chichester Yacht Club, Island Sailing Club and the RYA Sailability, the Club prides itself on its offshore cruising, dinghy, keelboat racing and training and social programme events.

Situated in historic Shoreham-by-Sea, the Sussex Yacht Club clubhouse boasts fantastic views up and down the river with a good opening to a wide sheltered harbour, and a good base of dinghy training in the Canal at a period Southwick clubhouse, a few miles east of the main clubhouse.

From a premier marina a few miles north of the Hamble Village near Southampton, the Club provides the opportunity for the offshore cruising aboard a brand new Ocean 62 Schooner, "Merrilyn" and aboard one of its fleet in a Tall Ship event on some occasions. The Rona Sailing Project has itself been catering for deaf and hard-of-hearing people since 1992 in its the cruising crossings in the English Channel and in the Irish Sea, and still continue to run two more voyages in 2010.

The club also benefits from the good support and kind hospitality from the RYA Sailability through Sussex Yacht Club and Royal Southern Yacht Club by joining some of the social and yachting events to enjoy some day tastings at the sea and the drinks at their clubhouse.

Please feel free to browse our website to find out more.
