One of the objectives of the Escala Yacht Club Sailing School is to make itself known so that as many people as possible hear about it; in this sense sailing for people with a disability is still quite an underdeveloped area within the world of sailing.
Continued ongoing training being carried out in this area is of the utmost importance in order that instructors, volunteers and administrative personnel may provide a top quality service with the highest levels of safety possible.

Sailing courses-For everyone: Courses in which the integration of people with disabilities within the group is a reality. For some years now students with varying levels of disability have been taking part in our courses. The courses take place in the months of June, July and August, as well as the first fortnight in September.

Training: the performance of the Sailing School as a training centre for people with disabilities and with experience in the world of sailing. These activities are always available when groups are accompanied by their instructors and corresponding volunteer workers. From September onwards, dates to be decided.
