This activity will begin at the sailing center, where you will find a few disabled parking bays, as well as step-free access and changing facilities.
At the center, instructors will be available to assist you in transferring into the sailing boats. The boats are designed with many body types in mind and are suitable for many levels of physical ability, including for quadriplegics. The boat design also makes it impossible for the boat to capsize, so you can sail without worrying about falling in the water. The instructors will explain the simple joystick rudder and rigging that you will use to steer the boat, which is great for beginner sailors.
You'll then set sail, either alone or in a tandem. You'll navigate for an hour on the boat yourself through Valparaiso Bay, admiring the stunning views and feeling the wind on your face as you glide over the waves.
The activity will last for 2 hours in total, one of which you'll be sailing, giving you plenty of time to take in the surroundings.
