Central Okanagan Sailing Association

COSA will be offering programs for persons with disabilities. We have 18 years of experience offering sailing programs for disabled individuals. With 2 accessible sailboats in our fleet we can accomidate many different disabilities. The sailboats that we utalize are a Martin 16 and a 303 Wide Access Dinghy. Both of these boats are excilent choices for our program. The safety aspects are plentiful. From the stability of not being able to capsize to the wide decks to keek ocupents dry. To top it off they are both very fun boats to sail in.

The Dragon was designed by Johan Anker in 1929. The original design had two berths and was ideally suited for cruising in his home waters of Norway. The boat quickly attracted owners and within ten years it had spread all over Europe.

In 1937 the Gold Cup was presented to the class by the Clyde Yacht Club Association. This quickly became one of the principal championships in the class and a prestigious trophy in the world of competitive yachting.
