On Friday, May 22 three quadriplegic sailors sailed 26 miles in Steamed, one of CRAB’s adapted 20 foot Freedoms. With winds gusting over 20 knots, they sailed from Under Armour’s dock in Baltimore to Annapolis’s Sandy Point State Park in just under four hours.
On Friday May 22nd, 2015, at 9:30 AM, three quadriplegics will attempt a 25 mile voyage from Baltimore's Inner Harbor to Annapolis's Sandy Point State Park. The adventure will be completed in one day, on one sailboat, and will undoubtedly test their endurance, strength and determination like never before. Together they hope to raise awareness and funds to promote sailing for the most disabled on Maryland's beautiful waters. Raised funds will go to the purchase of a state-of-the-art mouth control Sip 'n Puff system. This special piece of technology allows an individual with no physical movement in their arms or legs to control a large sailboat with just their breath.
