Voting opened yesterday in the annual scheme, and the group - one of only 10 projects to make it through in the Best Sports Project category - is calling on the public for its support.
The news comes a year after the charity received £50,000 from the Big Lottery Fund's People's Millions award which enabled the funding of the Sea Rover, a specially adapted vessel with a drop-down bow that enables access for wheelchair users.
More recently, as reported on Afloat.ie, the group added the Hawk 20 keel boat to its fleet which can take up to six for experience on the water.
Geraldine Duggan, chair of Belfast Lough Sailability said: "We're delighted to have reached the semi-finals of The National Lottery Awards and it's a superb acknowledgement for our staff and volunteers.
“With National Lottery funding, Belfast Lough Sailability was able to branch out, diversify and offer so much more to the community. We are a small organisation but we make a huge difference to the lives of those living with disability."
