Empowering Through Sailing

ETHOS proudly announces its support for Sailing for the Disabled, a distinguished charity enabling unique sailing experiences for individuals with disabilities since 1984. We aim to bolster the charity’s admirable mission to make sailing accessible to all, irrespective of any physical, mental, or emotional challenges.

The Pride of Mann III: A Beacon of Accessibility

Sailing for the Disabled sails the seas with Pride of Mann III, a Beneteau Oceanis 48 cruiser, meticulously adapted for safety and accessibility. Equipped with a stern boarding ramp, a lift to the saloon, and an enclosed cockpit cover, the yacht ensures that all members can enjoy sailing in any weather. This initiative embodies the spirit of adventure and the freedom of the open water.

Richard Wild: At the Helm of Change

Richard Wild, ETHOS’s Chairman and a dedicated Yachtmaster Instructor, significantly contributes as the charity’s Training Officer. Richard’s deep-seated passion for sailing and his expert guidance are crucial in enabling disabled members to sail alongside able-bodied individuals. This cooperation underscores our shared dedication to building inclusive communities and fostering personal growth through sailing.

Shared Values, Shared Goals

Our support for Sailing for the Disabled reflects ETHOS’s core values: community, accessibility, and the transformative power of volunteering. By backing this cause, we go beyond mere financial assistance; we affirm our commitment to societal engagement and enriching lives through distinctive experiences.

A Legacy of Inspiration

For decades, Sailing for the Disabled has not just offered sailing opportunities but has instilled a sense of pride and accomplishment in its members. The charity’s impact earned it the prestigious “Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service,” a testament to its significant contributions to enhancing lives.
