Welcome to Sailability

COVID UPDATE -DECEMBER 2021

Our COVID protocols for 2022 are currently undecided. In establishing our procedures we are guided by Queensland Health as well as Sailability Queensland and as the situation is fluid and sailing operations will stop for the Christmas break, it is not clear at the moment what protocols will be in place when we restart on Friday January 28th. However protocols may include:

  1. Temperature checks of volunteers, clients and carers
  2. Registration of volunteers, clients and carers via the Qld Health QR code app
  3. Mask-wearing
  4. Proof of vaccination

To attend sailing, volunteers, clients, carers and other visitors must agree to accept whatever conditions are in place at the time of sailing. Please keep this in mind when booking a sailing session.

Please continue to check Facebook or this Webpage for updates. Please click the “Book a Sail” link on the Main menu.

Since our establishment in 1998, Sailability Sunshine Coast has been providing a safe and fun environment where people with disabilities are accepted and encouraged to participate in the sport of sailing.
We sail on the Mooloolah River most Tuesday and Friday mornings from an area adjacent to the Mooloolaba Marina.

Proudly supported by the Sunshine Coast Council’s grant program

We are pleased to announce the success of our “Covid Recovery” application and the receipt of a grant of $1044 from the Sunshine Coast Council through the COVID-19 Community Response Grants program.

With these funds we were able to purchase 2 contactless thermometers, which will used when we resume sailing activities, as well as a GoPro video camera. We look forward to sharing some exciting footage.
