Mobility Sailing Revisited

I did a post two years ago I called Disabled Sailing but that term might not be politically correct; I see that 'Mobility Sailing' may be the more desired description. In any case, over the last two years, the proliferation of sailing videos covering the sailing programs for the disabled has been amazing. This is one sector of the sport that seems to be rapidly expanding and that is solely due to volunteerism.

Again, a big tip-of-the-hat for those that design and build the boats and equipment (marine metalworker Derek Dudinsky. is someone I know personally), fund raise, organize, do race committee, teach, crew and in any way contribute to ensure the joys of sailing remain open to all.
