SAILING December 19th, 2011

RHI offers individuals who want to experience the thrill of water sports a chance to participate in the sport of adaptive sailing. This program encourages the development of social networks, greater self-confidence, and overall personal well-being. Sailing can be adapted to specific disabilities and to the type of boat being used. The most popular boats used for adaptive sailing are those with large seating areas. The larger area gives individuals more room to move while steering. However, participants must be cautious that balance and strength are important when sailing in order to keep the boat balanced during strong winds. Some boats even have built-in seats equipped with seatbelts for increased stability for those individuals with limited core strength. For additional information please check out these websites:
