If tacking and jibing don’t sound like ideal pastimes for the visually impaired, you’re in for an inspiring surprise. These individuals might be legally blind, but that’s not stopping them from sailing. Blind Sailing Canada’s mission is to provide recreational sailing opportunities for blind and visually impaired Canadians. With the assistance of sighted crew on board, everyone is able to part take in a safe and enjoyable experience on open water. Clubs like this make us proud to be Canadian!
