Geoff Holt reports on Sailability  in his new blog post:


he RYA's disabled sailing division, Sailability, has recently launched it's new Facebook page. Membership has been expanding rapidly and members are encouraged to contribute details of their forthcoming events and to share best practice. "It's great, just what we needed, and by using social networking, we can reach out to a much wider audience whilst still communicating with our existing sailors and volunteers" said RYA Sailability Manager Debbie Blatchford.  Facebook members just click on search "RYA Sailability".

Sailability's new Facebook page compliments their existing Sailability.TV service which has now been running for nearly 18 months.  Sailability.TV is a free on-line resource for Sailability clubs, disabled sailors, volunteers and potential donors to watch a wide range of online streaming videos covering a range of activities including the different classes of boat, a selection of existing Sailability groups and latest news. You can also sign up to Sailability's new Podcast on iTunes.  Click the iTunes link at  www.ryasailability.tv
