What is ILRC Able Sail?

ILRC Able Sail is a Winnipeg-based, accessible summer sailing program offered by the Independent Living Resource Centre. The program is founded, coordinated and operated by people with disabilities and dedicated volunteers.

We operate out of the beautiful Fort Whyte Alive, on Devonian Lake

Our mission is to provide Manitobans with disabilities the opportunity to access and enjoy sailing activities while promoting enhanced independence and community.

Our goals:

  • To provide sailing opportunities for Manitobans regardless of ability, age, or economic means
  • To provide a unique, enjoyable experience for our participants which includes opportunities for social, recreational, rehabilitative and competitive activities
  • To build confidence, self-esteem, and enhance independence for people with mobilty or other impairments
