Volunteer Sailing Skippers are required to skipper small boats to enable people with a disability to experience sailing. The purpose of Sailability Townsville is to enable people with a disability to learn how to sail or to experience sailing with a skilled/trained volunteer. As our service grows we need more volunteer sailors to crew our boats. Ideally our sailing skippers will: • be willing to learn how to sail small boats • have a can-do attitude around disability • have a common sense approach to safety
