Belfast Lough Sailability Seeks More Volunteers For Training

#BelfastLough - Belfast Lough Sailability is on the lookout for new volunteers to assist in its sail training efforts for people with disabilities.

As highlighted in the Carrick Times recently, the Northern Irish charity regularly runs training sessions from its base at Carrickfergus Marina on Belfast Lough, making use of its fleet of specially adapted boats.

But the practical training - provided by a team of qualified instructors as well as a number of disabled sailors - also involves skills useful off the water, such as first aid.

The Carrick Times has more on the story HERE.
