Looking for people living with dementia to take part in our Dementia Sails in 2018!

Sail Boat Project has teamed up with Dementia Adventure to organise sailing trips for people living with dementia in Sussex. We are offering subsidised places for people living with dementia and a family member, carer or friend to join us on a half day taster sail in Chichester Harbour or to contact us to arrange a bespoke sailing trip of one to seven days around the south coast. This work is supported by grants from Sussex Community Foundation and the Royal Southern Yacht Club.

“We hope to create lasting memories for people with dementia” said Sail Boat Project skipper Ben Gillett. “These trips will give people with dementia the opportunity to have engaging experiences in a safe environment with their family or carers, who will also benefit from the new and exciting experience.” Our commercially endorsed skippers will be assisted by two volunteers on each trip, all of whom have been trained in working with people with dementia by Dementia Adventure.

We welcome hearing from any businesses that would be interested in supporting Dementia Sails or any of our other community work. In return, we can offer rewards including sailing activities for your staff or clients.
