Disabled Sailing Thailand took quadriplegic girl sailing on a Platu 25 sailing yacht

This Sunday a group of people have given up their time and expense to give Nantini Dhoowa the chance to realize a dream. “Nina’ is severely disabled (quadriplegic) but nevertheless is fully committed to go sailing. Not on a 42 foot cruising yacht will all amenities but she has chosen to experience life on a Platu, a 25 foot racing yacht with no amenities, just a lot of ropes. This outing was the perfect way to experience sailing after she followed an intense theoretical sailing course with Sail Instructor Mr James Mutter. The Disabled Sailing Thailand volunteers are now building an SV14 accessible sailing boat which Nina and other sailors with disabilities will be able to sail through joysticks controls.

Frank Bruno the world famous boxer will be giving a charity evening at the Amari hotel on the 3rd of November, the profits of this charity evening will go to 3 designated charity of which Disabled Sailing Thailand is one, so please come support them.

Thanks go to
Scott Finsten, (marina manager of Ocean Marina Yacht Club) for arranging to provide marina facilities free of charge.

Peter Jacops, (Blue Peter Marine) for arranging the complicated off water arrangements.

James Mutter, (Sailquest), for providing the “on water” arrangements

K Wikki Nualkahair for generously providing the Platu 25 yacht.

Doug Smith and Kev Scott for modifying the boat to accept Nina’s wheelchair.

Grant Atkinson, at the North sails repair loft, for modifying sails to suit the trip free of charge.

Nina, for being brave and adventurous.
