Sailing takes many forms; you can cruise, race or simply potter around in all kinds of boats, on the sea or inland water. It is one of the very few sports in which able-bodied sailors and disabled sailors can participate on equal terms.

The DSC promotes all types of sailing for people with all types and degrees of disability. The values of the DSC are equity, opportunity to excel and empowerment for sailors with disabilities.
