South Cerney Sailing Club 

Blind Sailing has clubs and centers across the UK that support our charity's activities as a large group, or take some of our individual sailors under their wing as part of our #SailatHome project.  This means so much and allows our activities. to carry on.  But, since 2020 South Cerney Sailing club has made Blind Sailing members and given the charity a base.

They have opened their doors and provided their facilities to train both on and off the water and also access to their club boats.  It's a partnership that is providing more access outside of our regular weekends.

If your club or center would like to get involved please contact us below.

Sailing Vision Week

Blind Sailing UK is also a keen supporter of Sailing Vision Week, an event organised by Sailing Vision Trust where many of our volunteer and VI sailors started.  


Sailing Vision Week (SVW) has been operating for more than 45 years and is believed to be the largest event of its kind for visually impaired sailors in the UK (and possibly Europe). The event alternates between Falmouth and the Solent with local yacht clubs acting as the host venue. Each year between 20 to 25 privately owned and chartered yachts take part and are able to offer 50-60 crew places to visually impaired sailors, with about 1 in 3 VI sailors each year being completely new to the event and to watersports generally.  Sailing Vision Week is always very pleased to welcome VI sailors of all ages (minimum age of 18) - previous sailing experience is not required!  The week encourages participants to learn new skills, make new friends, and quite literally broaden their horizons.  The yachts are grouped into four or five fleets and the week commences with introductions, briefings and yacht familiarisation sessions prior to setting sail.
