WET WHEELS

We work closely with "Wet Wheels", a charitable organisation that operates from Whitby (and occasionally Scarborough) taking groups out onto the North Sea in their Catamaran to see the wild life. Each trip takes a maximum of 10 people, including up to three wheelchairs, and lasts about 90 minutes. To date we have taken people with MS, MND, Parkinson's, Downs Syndrome, and Strokes. We also offer the facility to carer's groups to give them a break. We are planning eight trips in 2022 starting in May

On August 1st 2018 (Yorkshire Day) Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal, visited Whitby to meet participants and crew on board Wetwheels Yorkshire. Her Royal Highness then performed a naming ceremony to officially welcome the this, the fifth, boat into the Wetwheels fleet.

Peter Richardson is the Chairman and Skipper of the Yorkshire boat and this is the only time we have seen him in a shirt and tie!!

Launched in 2018, Wetwheels Yorkshire became the fifth regional operator for the national disability power boating charity Wetwheels Foundation. It provides an experience for disabled people to experience the excitement of power boating, and ABC has been a regular user of their facilities since it started operating in Yorkshire in 2018.The pictures are of ABC guests enjoying a day out with Wetwheels. There is also a video that, if you look closely, includes dolphins off the coast just outside Whitby.
