The DSA BC is a non-profit organization which hopes to introduce people with disabilities to the joys of sailing on our beautiful Okanagan Lake. Our Okanagan branch has been running since 1993.
Our programs include sailing for the fun of it, sailing to learn to Sail Canada standards and for the more adventurous; we offer the opportunity to learn to race and compete along with the Kelowna Yacht Club racing fleet.
Our boats ensure your safety and offer great accessibility. They are designed NOT TO TIP (these are not swimming lessons!) and even people with severe disabilities can learn to operate them using a joystick or state of the art sip and puff technology.
We have trained instructors as well as lots of experienced volunteers, who all want to make your experience fun and liberating!
For locals, your first sail is a nominal fee, completely refundable if you buy a membership! Come on down and give it a try.
