At the start of last month we were honoured to provide a client with severe disabilities the opportunity to get on the water and experience the thrill of our sport. With a careful risk assessment and the help of Marcus Frith – the Director of Sailing from Chesil Sailability, we were able to fulfil the session plan and provide a real taste of windsurfing to Richard Parmiter.

As the result of an acquired injury, Richard is unable to walk, being wheelchair bound. This fact would normally prohibit participation in any sailing sport, bar the use of specially designed dinghies. However, with the use of the fabled Bi Planche (of which we are the proud tenants of several), and the facilities at WPNSA, we were able to provide a joyride for Richard, enabling him to use his one useable arm to harness the wind’s power and feel the exhilaration we all enjoy.
