Time: 5-6 p.m. or 6-7 p.m.
Location: Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center, Vermont Adaptive offices
Come enjoy an evening of sailing on Lake Champlain with us this summer. We’ll be out on Tuesdays for sailing, with access to two Martin 16 sailboats and each one will go out for (2) one-hour sails either from 5-6 p.m. or 6-7 p.m. The Martin 16 is a 1 on 1 learn to sail so that means caregivers and aids/families are not able to participate with them. Please keep this in mind when considering this program and talk to Molly for more details.
This is a FREE learn to sail program but reservations are required. Email Molly at firstname.lastname@example.org to details and to reserve your spot.
About the Martin 16
The Canadian designed and built Martin 16 is a boat that allows children and adults with physical disabilities the possibility of leaving their wheelchair or other mobility device behind and going sailing! Even individuals with weak arms or no use of their arms can sail independently using power assist technology.
As it names suggests, the Martin 16 is 16 feet long – the size of many small sailboats. But unlike other boats, the Martin 16 has been specially designed to meet the needs of sailors with disabilities.
