Able Sail had over 32 dedicated volunteers who generously gave 1800 hours of their time to the program in 2014 & 2015! We are extremely grateful to each and every one for the extraordinary variety of skills and  experience, enthusiasm and dedication they bring to the program year after year. It’s immensely rewarding to enable our Able Sailors to learn and master the sport of sailing!

There are many volunteer opportunities through out the season and every little bit helps! Volunteers receive a full orientation to the program in a volunteer training day, prior to the season start.
