Expat in Phuket donates two S V14 canoes to Handicap Sailing Thailand


Disabled Sailing Thailand has added two new boats to its fleet in Phuket, with the launch of the S V Arnaud 1 and S V Arnaud 2.

The two 14ft S V14 dinghies are designed to be sailed by people with disabilities and uncomfortable on the water. They will support Disabled Sailing Thailand’s goal of making sailing more accessible.

Both S V14s are named after Arnaud C. Verstraete, a longtime expat and philanthropist in Phuket, who kindly donated them to Disabled Sailing Thailand.

“I have been Disabled Sailing Thailand with interest for quite some time. What they are doing, providing opportunities for people with disabilities who have never existed before, is a good thing and something that I am proud to support. It’s not just about sailing, it’s about building people’s self-confidence and giving people with disabilities a sense of freedom and fun, ”said Verstraete.

Disabled Sailing Thailand was established in 2015 with the aim of offering people with disabilities the opportunity to experience sailing in a safe environment, empower them and give them the freedom and mobility on the water that often lacking in their life on land.

The boats are also expected to appeal to international travelers with disabilities who are looking for safe and accessible activities to enjoy while traveling, as well as professional para-mariners from around the world who can now come to Phuket for training.

Peter Jacops, Founder of Disabled Sailing Thailand, said: “The kind donation of these two brand new S V14s by Arnaud will make such a difference to sailing in Phuket. Currently there are very few boats in Thailand that are suitable for para-mariners and the S V14 is a perfect dinghy for beginners or professionals. These two new boats mean that our fleet in Phuket now has four and that we will be able to provide more fun sailing opportunities for people with disabilities on the island.
