At NESS, we aim to get everyone out on the water regardless of age, skill level, or ability. In 2017, in collaboration with Sail To Prevail, NESS launched its adaptive sailing program in Stonington, CT. Through our adaptive sailing program, NESS provides access to the ocean and takes students out of their comfort zones for personal growth and empowerment.

Our adaptive teaching methods and specialized equipment support individuals with a variety of cognitive and/or physical disabilities. Using our adaptive-ready, specifically designed Sonar and Independence 20 sailboat, students with physical and cognitive disabilities will safely learn to sail with an experienced captain and teacher.

Our adaptive sailing program brings the fun and therapeutic qualities of sailing to individuals with diverse needs. Please contact us to schedule a memorable sailing experience.

This event is free and open to the public, but advanced registration is required and spots are limited. These spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Sign up today!

Come learn what our program has to offer and meet fellow sailors!
