Sailing course for persons with disabilities on Lake Garda
Sailing without barriers at Fraglia Vela Malcesine
Our headquarters are modern and completely accessible. You can move around without barriers in all spaces; from the office to the restaurant, from the car park to the mooring.
Getting on the boat is usually the biggest obstacle, at Fraglia everybody can do it. Our moorings have been designed with the correct height to get on the boat alone. In case of need, we also have a small crane to help sailors to get on the boats.
Also the Italian Sailing Federation chose us for their training base for the Paralympic team. From 2009 to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, Beppe Devoti, our sport director, has been the technical director of the Paralympic team.
We also host associations that work to introduce sailing to people with physical and mental disabilities, using Dream boats
Since 2013, we have been collaborating with Inal (National institutions for Occupational Accident Insurance ) for the project “Spiega la Vela” (which means “explain sailing”), born to introduce sailing to people with disabilities caused by accident on the work site.
During our courses we use two boats: Dream and Sonar. In both cases the instructor is always on the boat with the student.
Knowing your type of disability helps us prepare ourselves to make you enjoy your day on the boat to the fullest and put you completely at ease.
We are waiting for you.
