Sailability Greater Tampa Bay's mission is to provide affordable, accessible, sailing activities and education to children and adults of all abilities focusing on community integration to improve the quality of life for all involved.
The concept of our program was born in March of 2001. It was at that time that a small group of people envisioned and implemented an opportunity within their community. They knew that the sport of sailing was one in which those individuals who were physically challenged, could partake in this fun activity. They knew that boats could be adapted to individuals' needs, thereby affording those with physical limitations the opportunity to experience the fun in sailing. Hence, those challenged individuals quickly realized that only limitation they faced were those of the mind, and, that whatever one might set their mind to do can be accomplished.
