I think this article is great:

http://www.myhandicap.com/accessible-sailing-lord-nelson.html

That's exactly the kind of article I would expect on this international platform. And what's more: the prices (600 up to 1000 Euro) are within the range of a reasonable holiday budget, don't you think?

Best regards

Hi

What about sign language? Can deaf people also go there?

Hi deafMami,

I don't know about sign language. They say "all kinds of disabilities" but do not specify. Why don't you get in touch with the sailing team. I've copy/pasted the address details for you:

My suggestion is: if you're really interested, why don't you round up a group of deaf colleagues/friends to do this trip together......


Personally, I'm more afraid of getting sea-sick. I got a very sensitive stomach. Used to throw up as a kid everytime we did a car trip. And once I got on a boat by stormy weather and got totally green in the face icon_smile.gif)
