Operated by the Charity All-Aboard! we strive to make it possible for everyone in our community to join in a range of watersports and water related activities in the beautiful and historic Bristol City Docks. This includes people with physical, emotional or cognitive disabilities or infirmaties, of all ages, who would otherwise, for whatever reason, feel that there were barriers to their participation. We work with individuals, groups, schools, charities and healthcare providers.
Thanks to support from the Olympic Heritage Fund and the Durston Trust, our premises are now fully accessible and have expanded to offer opportunities to both groups and individuals to enjoy participation in a variety of activities here.
We are a recognised training centre for the RYA, an RYA Sailability Centre of Excellence, Onboard centre and Volvo Championship Centre. We are also now affiliated to the BCU and British Rowing and so can offer rowing and paddlesports also. This year we will be introducing raft building as a new activity for schools and groups.
Browse through our website to see the variety of opportunities there are for everyone to access the water, and use our new booking system to secure your place.
If you are a school or group or have special requirements please contact us . We are proud to work with health providers and charities to offer the benefit of watersports as a means of rehabilitation. All our instructors are skilled at working with people who face additional challenges and support them in discovering what they are able to achieve.
