'Watersports with SailWise is more than just enjoyment on the water. By being active, everyone, regardless of their degree of disability, can experience a sense of freedom again. We let you discover what you can do, so you can forget your disability for a while. Because with the right adaptations, anyone can do water sports!
Our sailing holidays
With our fully adapted and wheelchair-accessible accommodation, we offer unique sailing holidays that you can sign up for. You always go on holiday with like-minded people. Being active, having a holiday, meeting new people and being in control are the keywords for your ultimate water sports holiday. We offer sailing holidays for people with:
- Physical and/or sensory impairment
- Non-congenital brain injury
- Mental or multiple disabilities
Our holidays are fully catered, i.e. including breakfast, lunch and dinner. We also arrange - where necessary - supervision, ADL care and/or nursing care. There are no extra costs involved. Moreover, we guarantee your safety during the sailing holiday. The crew members and volunteers present are well trained and there are sufficient life jackets and buoys.
Our holiday apartments
If you have a physical disability, going on holiday can be quite a challenge. After all, at home you often have all the aids at hand. At SailWise we know how important a carefree holiday is for people with a disability. That is why we rent adapted holiday homes (4-6 p.) and a group accommodation (13 p.) with special facilities in our water sports centre It Sailhûs, so that you and your family or friends can enjoy a carefree holiday! You will find It Sailhûs on the edge of the Fluessen, Friesland's second largest lake. The wheelchair-accessible holiday homes have facilities such as a fixed hoist, high-low beds, adapted sanitary facilities with a fixed shower chair and an accessible kitchen.
At water sports centre It Sailhûs, there is a pleasant terrace overlooking the water. You can hire a (sailing) boat with or without a skipper to explore the Frisian lakes, even if you are in a wheelchair. Would you rather explore the beautiful nature reserve on land? That too is possible! Around It Sailhûs you can enjoy walking or cycling, for example with our electric wheelchair bike. Or visit one of the nearby towns of the famous Frisian Elfsteden!
