The Sailability Programme continues to offer weekly sailing development and sailing experiences for the differently-abled youths and adults of Antigua. Weekly visits in term time are made by the Adele School, The Victory Centre, the National Rehabilitation Centre (NRC) & Friends of the Care Project as well as a number of differently-abled individuals.
Working with Ronald Greenaway, program manager at the NRC we are now reaching out to the elderly community members in Barnes Hill, Cedar Grove, All Saints and Sweetes. Six people a week visit and enjoy a joy ride of the harbour and the dockside lime post sailing.

Amerilla is retired from a very business career of many years including being the owner of Shippers Express Brokers and Forwarders and working for the Government. She is the mother of three and grandmother of 5 and began her sailing journey in 2022. She is 65 years young at the end of this month, proving it's never to late to learn and enjoy new experiences.
