Sailability

Frensham Pond Sailability offers people, who because of a long term illness or disability, require support to sail. There is a range of sailing available from therapeutic to competitive sailing all within a safe, caring and social environment. The site is easily accessible and all equipment and facilities needed for sailing are provided. So why not come and experience what many have described as 'freedom on the water'.

Welcome

to Frensham Pond Sailability (FPS), which started in 2001 as a partnership between Frensham Pond Sailing Club (FPSC) and Farnham & District Sports Association for the Disabled (FDSAD). Since then FPS has become a recognised charity, number 1142761, with its own Trustees and Management Committee and is fully integrated with FPSC.

Proper sailing is offered on Frensham Great Pond for people of all ages with disabilities or long term illnesses. Hoists are provided for transfers between wheelchairs and boats when needed. No previous experience of sailing is necessary.

FPS provides a wide range of very stable boats that cater for individual capabilities, experience and ambition. Our dinghies and mini-keelboats provide opportunities for all types of sailing from leisure cruising to fully competitive racing.
