Today, I’m going to leave you with a list of links that lead to websites promoting Access Dinghies for the disabled and less agile people.
In my search for a new project, I’ve been considering a similar type of vessel for my own use, not that I am disabled, just less agile than I was in my prime. I’ve been looking for a dinghy that can be sailed without the need for gymnastics to keep her upright, but getting hold of an Access Dinghy without paying a fortune for her is not easy. There don’t appear to be any second-hand ones for sale in the UK, presumably because they are much used by those who really need them, not partially immobile fuddy-duddies like me in their 70s who just want to get out on the water for a bit of fun.
I make no excuses for using photos from websites promoting Access Dinghies, because more publicity can only be beneficial for all parties concerned, i.e., the manufacturers of these boats, organisations and clubs that provide facilities and tuition for those who sail them.
