Building the confidence of our disabled participants

For the second time Wetwheels will be present at our festival because we also want the whole festival to be accessible to everyone! The Wetwheels will moor at a pontoon of the Royal North Sea Yachtclub near the visserskaai ! It will be accessible to all our disabled visitors !

The Wetwheels Foundation is a charity completely dedicated to develop, safeguard, raise awareness and generate charitable funding for Geoff Holt’s Wetwheels concept.

Wetwheels builds the confidence of our disabled participants by providing the opportunity to access the sea in a fun, safe, stimulating and rewarding way using specially modified, fully accessible powerboats.

With the support of our donors and partner organisations we provide water-based activity experiences for disabled people on board our specially designed boats, from centres within local communities.

Our adventurous trips afloat are staffed by specialists who ensure each person can share experiences, challenge their self-perceptions, extend their horizons, and discover new opportunities.

Beneficiaries are active participants, rather than simply passengers, with the opportunity to steer the vessel and learn seamanship, alongside their peers, friends, and families. The experience is truly inclusive helping to improve aspirations and increase confidence.

Our vessel attending Ostend at Anchor 2019 is Wetwheels South East that is based in Dover, Kent. She covers the south east region from London to Eastbourne. So come say hello to the friendly crew and see Wetwheels in action.
