     Title: First ever Disability Pride UK


Sussex Sailability took part in the first ever Disability Pride event in the UK, held in Brighton on Sunday 9 July. The event was part of an international celebration of what disabled people can achieve, with events also running concurrently in New York and Italy. Disability Pride basked in the sunshine and rocked to music and dancing into the warm summer's evening.

Sussex Sailability was one of only a few disabled sports groups represented at the event. There was a lot of interest from people with disabilities interested in taking up sailing as well as offers of support and donations from potential new volunteers.

Thanks are due to Tony McCoy for organising Sussex Sailability's participation in Disability Pride and to all of the volunteers who came along to help and support the event.
