Over the last couple of years I have been taking my son to the All Aboard water sports centre where he has discovered a love of sailing. Since developing FND I have also been participating in this amazing sport, at sessions every Saturday. It is a beautiful spot down near the Underfall Yard and Baltic Wharf. With the sun out and a gentle wind, it provides an amazing feeling of freedom, away from the confines that FND can bring. It doesn’t matter if you have no previous experience, there are always volunteers who can help. If sailing isn’t something that you want to try, there are also power boats that can take wheelchairs for a trip around the docks. Above all, it is a chance to enjoy the company of others.   All Aboard have a fantastic range of boats that can take wheelchairs, enable people to be hoisted into, and the volunteers are incredibly helpful.
