NEW ADAPTED RIDE

One more step towards full accessibility

The Monte Real Yacht Club took a new step towards the goal of achieving full accessibility to its facilities with the inauguration of an adapted promenade that will facilitate the transit of people with reduced mobility.

It is a 60-meter path that connects the club building with the pontoon area through which people who use wheelchairs or other technical assistance elements can circulate safely and comfortably on their journeys.

With a width of almost a meter and a half, reinforced concrete, non-slip coating and perfectly defined, this path is the latest of the actions launched by Monte Real within the framework of its plan to eliminate architectural barriers. The purchase of adapted boats, the elimination of curbs, the construction of ramps or the remodeling of bathrooms were some of the actions carried out previously.

The person in charge of inaugurating the walk was the Councilor for Accessibility of Baiona, Policarpo Vilar, who was accompanied by the Mayor of Baiona, Ángel Rodal, and the General Secretary for Sport, as well as other authorities of the Xunta de Galicia and the Baiona Council.
