Chesil Sailability was inspired by the 2012 Paralympic Games. We are
our local 2012 legacy in practice, based at the Paralympic sailing venue
on Portland, Dorset. We are a local group of people who are passionate
about going sailing, regardless of disabilities. We provide
taster sessions & fun sailing through to competitive racing. With
a brilliant team of volunteers and a range of boats from single-handed
small boats to keelboats and racing dinghies, we can support everyone
to go as far as they want to go. Our sailors range from people with long
-term health conditions to people with learning difficulties and people with
high level spinal cord injuries – we’ve got the facilities onshore and
the equipment on the water to share the freedom, joy and exhilaration of
being afloat with everyone, no matter what their disability.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
