Inclusive Activities for people with additional needs

With our specially-adapted powerboat ‘Friendship of Plymouth’ and our Hawk 20 sailing boats, no-one is excluded from the excitement of getting out on the water. Everyone can help to helm and crew the boat – right up to the limit of their abilities.

Friendship has been built with a specific facilities for people with profound physical disabilities.

This enables us to safely secure up to 5 wheelchairs on deck – including one at the steering position.

Wheelchairs are embarked via a removable
access door and loading ramp.

Each wheelchair is securely fastened with
 straps attached to fittings built into the deck.

Everyone feels safe and secure –
and has a great time!

Anyone can enjoy a sail in one of
our Hawk 20s
