All visually impaired and blind people are welcome to enjoy the delights of BATs, even if they have never been on the water before!
If you are a visually impaired person and are local to Cornwall please contact us and we can arrange a sailing opportunity for you. BATS can also help to organise transport for visually impaired members.
BATS activities are made possible by volunteers who skipper the boats and help assist Vi s and provide competent crews. Vi members have the opportunity, if they wish, to participate in all aspects of the Club, BATS welcomes all new members and volunteers. Experience is not necessary as training is available. This is provided through the Club’s own resource. Volunteers with admin/fund raising skills and willing drivers are all very welcome.
Thanks to the generosity of penryn Gig club we are able to offer a gig rowing from Mylor slipway (boat hire car park) Gig rowing is offered throughout the winter however this is dependent on the weather.
Today gig rowing with BATS need not be a strenuous activity; it can be fun, friendly and exhilarating! Why not give it a try? BATS gig rowing takes place in the picturesque, tranquil setting of Mylor Harbour on alternate Monday evenings, starting in May. During the winter months it takes place Saturday mornings as weather permits.
No experience is necessary, and under the guidance of excellent coxes from Nankersey gig club BATS members can experience the joy of gig rowing. For more information contact: Hermione Morrison 01326 574720
