A charity which allows children with disabilities to enjoy sailing is building a unique boathouse to help its members in and out of the water. The new £500,000 building will allow disabled sailors to launch their dinghies at the touch of a button.
The Princess Royal is in Staffordshire this morning to visit a sailing club for children with severe disabilities. HRH Princess Anne is opening a new £500,000 boathouse at Rudyard Sailability near Leek.
The state of the art facility, equipped with hoists to help club members get in and out of boats, will give children more independence.
