There is a wheelchair friendly powerboat where the front section flaps down to allow ease of boarding for those with any kind of mobility problems. Our sailing boats have some adaptations although there are none that have wheelchair access or for those who cannot sit unaided at present. Our classrooms have a 1:12 ramp access (recommended) and the door is the standard 800mm width and can be accessed at an angle with plenty of room to turn into the doorway. Classrooms include projector, screen and hearing loop facility. Ramps give access to a pontoon by a slipway and there are boats adapted for those with special access requirements as in the pictures above. Lighting in all huts are fluorescent tubes. Tables are wheelchair friendly in the classrooms for covering the theoretical aspects of the sailing or powerboating courses.

There are great facilities for toilets and showers including disabled facilities within the harbour which is well sign-posted. Unfortunately there are no toilet facilities on our quay as this is a English Heritage Site and there is no superior plumbing! The harbour facilities are approximately 300m from the site. The door is the standard 800mm width and can be accessed straight on and is not at an angle. There is a coded access to the door and this is given on request so please just ask any staff or contact us on 01326 377633 prior to your arrival if required.
