We would be hugely grateful of you were to consider a donation to Wetwheels. Your continuing support allows us to provide boating opportunities to people with disabilities from the local community. We receive support from a range of individuals, Trusts, companies and community groups, but we always seek new funds to ensure the future of our work - thank you.
Costs and a trip on Wetwheels?
Where appropriate and in order to ensure we deliver a sustainable service, we ask participants to contribute towards the costs of their trip. We may be able to access funds to cover some programme funding but we are adamant that lack of finance should not exclude anyone from enjoying our boating opportunities.
Please contact us to enquire and discuss this further.
What safety equipment and information is provided?
Access to Wetwheels is via a side-opening door and ramp onto her large open deck. She is MCA coded (category 3) to take up to 10 passengers up to 20 miles offshore. We have designed 3 wheelchair tie-down positions on the deck for maximum safety. We are equipped with the latest safety equipment including a 12 person liferaft, lifejackets and flares. Our skippers are all commercially endorsed and we are fully insured. We also have a detailed safety policy and a full set of risk-assessments available on request.
Can you advise details regarding access, parking & joining instructions?
