U.S. Disabled Sailing Championship
The disabled people also do wonders with the sails and that is what they proved at the U.S. Disabled Sailing Championship.
The championship that was held this year was at the Clearwater Community Sailing Center. Having occurred the last weekend, there were sailors who have to showcase action single handedly. It is not a regatta that is new and has been existing for sailors who have different kinds of disabilities. There are Paralympians in this category who compete regularly and strengthen their sailing skills. This year the regatta had new as well as old members competing.
It was first started in 1986 when it was known as the U.S. Independence Cup. It soon became known as the National championship for sailors who had disabilities. This occurred in 1989. The regatta was then brought under US Sailing championship division in 2007. Subsequently, it was renamed as U.S. Disabled Sailing Championship. (more…)
