Disabled Sailing Association of Ontario

Assistive Equipment - KAPE Seat Campaign

Toronto has over 400,000 disabled people and limited sources of physical activity, Queens Quay Disabled Sailing Program can bridge that gap. With capacity to accommodate 1500 sailing excursions, you can help make this happen.


Not all of our sailors have full use or strength of their arms or hands. Not all sailors have trunk control, where it is harder for them without all of their  abdominal muscles to keep their upper body steady and upright. the KAPE Seat can be swapped into Martin16 sailboats quickly, and the back of the seat adjusted for the body type and sizing of the sailors with horizontal, vertical and angle adjustments. The feeling for the sailors is of more stability, they are safer and more confident. and they look like their in a racing car!

DSAO obtained one KAPE Seat in 2016 via a donation, and it has been so popular and valued that the members would be excited to get two more. Each seat is $750 each.
