What is Mylor Sailability?

The Mylor Sailability is the charitable arm of Mylor Sailing School and is a Charity Incorporated Organisation (CIO) charity number 1159984 and was founded by Tracey Boyne (owner of Mylor Sailing School) in 2014. Due to the very high demand of sailing and powerboating activities required for all ages and levels of health impairments, physical disabilities and learning difficutlies, a charitable arm of Mylor Sailing School was started. It is dependent on outside donations and funding to keep the sessions as affordable as possible.

For the information on our trustees, you can see a link at the footer of the page.
