The coach boat follows the youth ages  7 and up when ever they are on the water to offer assistance and safety for all.
 
The Rotary Club of Hamilton East is proud of this organization's continued success in giving these youth a chance to explore where the opportunity did not exist.
 
 
 
Burlington Able Sail provides sailing and instruction for differently abled sailors by providing access and opportunity to sail for individuals with a physical or cognitive disability and by doing so enhance their quality of life.
Sailing from the LaSalle Park Marina during the months of July and August.
The program focuses on the Martin 16 sailboat, which is equipped to cater to physically/ cognitively challenged people of all ages. The boats are extremely stable and can be sailed with either a companion instructor in the stern seat or solo by individual sailors who have attained enough experience to “go it alone”.
