Celebrating 300 years

Sailing freedom for disabled

Tuesday, 13 June 2017

Devonshire PGM Ian Kingsbury met Disabled Sailing Association (DSA) chairman David Musgrove to present a £2,000 grant from the Masonic Charitable Foundation

The DSA was formed in 2005 and sails out of Torquay. In 2007, the charity won National Lottery funding through The People’s Millions, with the money enabling it to buy Freedom, an ocean-sailing Hanse 350, and adapt her for wheelchair users and other disabilities.

In 2014, a second People’s Millions win led to the purchase of Free Spirit, a Hanse 345 with improved stern access.
