Adaptive Sailing

An Afternoon of Sailing – The Best Therapy

The LCYC Adaptive Sailing Program

The LCYC Adaptive Sailing Program, established in 2006, is geared toward providing a day of sailing to both adults and young people with physical and/or intellectual disabilities. Club volunteers conduct a morning orientation and Sailing 101 class followed by a prepared lunch. LCYC skippers then treat participants to an afternoon on the water, sharing their passion for sailing and offering a welcome break from more pressing concerns. There are currently three Adaptive Sailing days each calendar year, serving the Door in the Wall program as well as wounded warriors from Operation Comfort. The 30+ club volunteers and their boats are what ensure the program’s continued success. Contact Joe McDonough if you can help make a difference.
