About the project

The charity, which is part of Mylor Sailing School, has received the £48,270 from The National Lottery. It will be used to provide a specially adapted pontoon with a hoist to make sailing accessible to those with wheelchairs and other severe disabilities. The project will also see the building of new classrooms and changing facilities.

Charity founder Tracey Boyne said: “The funding for the new building is going to make a phenomenal difference to Mylor Sailability and its members. “At the moment we cannot run day-time sessions in the summer months due to the lack of capacity with the commercial school. “The new classroom and social area will come complete with a sophisticated projector and hearing loop system to enable us to deliver the shorebased sessions to all participants working through the RYA scheme to help achieve certification. “This will also create a social area for members and a shelter in bad weather.
