Enjoy Adaptive Sports with an added adrenaline rush?

Access Adventures might be a little something for to you consider when the world settles. I’ve attended 3 camps now and I’m slightly addicted, They are a non-profit organisation providing accessible adventure camps for people with physical disabilities in the UK 

Hope you enjoy the Video

    If you like your sailing, the Jubilee Sailing Trust is a charity which has ships adapted to enable all physical abilities to sail a ship. Wheelchair adapted, too.  

    Personally, I crewed a Tall Ship across the North Atlantic and whilst you have that opportunity to do something totally unique, I raised a considerable amount of money for charity. I was also sponsored by a cancer charity, myself.

    I was hoisted up the mast in a wheelchair and that's an amazing experience i'll never forget.

    I couldn't even consider that, now.

    It's just amazing. I would recommend a shorter trip aroun the UK to start with. I was into my sailing before i became as 'disabled' as i am now, and have some sailing and powerboating qualifications, but you don't need anything to do this.

    Just pure grit and determination? Haha
