Wetwheels South West is the sixth and latest operating location for the national disability power boating charity Wetwheels Foundation.
The world of powerboating is opening up to thousands of disabled people in the Westcountry and beyond with the launch of Wetwheels South West, a custom built, fully accessible, £200,000 catamaran in Falmouth, Cornwall.
Wetwheels was founded in 2011 by Geoff Holt MBE DL – a lifelong sailor who was paralysed in a swimming accident in 1984 – whose passionate mission has been to give people of all ages, including those with the most profound disabilities, the opportunity to get out on the water in an exhilarating, safe, stimulating and rewarding way.
With the support of donors and partners the, charity provides barrier-free water-based adventures for disabled people on board specially designed boats with specialist staff who ensure each person can share experiences, challenge their self-perceptions, extend their horizons, and discover new opportunities.
