LWSA is committed to removing barriers to enjoyment of the sport of sailing. That includes physical and other barriers that could be considered disabilities. We believe that sailing can foster water safety, self-confidence, teamwork, honesty, positive sporting values, and an appreciation for our environment.
Therefore, LWSA has reached out to various community organizations over the years to provide opportunities for people who are physically or mentally disabled or recovering from trauma to experience and enjoy sailing.
If you or your organization would benefit from a day or a program on the water, please contact us.
LWSA also has the goal of developing greater capacity and permanent programs that it can offer to people of all abilities, regardless of limitation or adaptation. Adaptive sailing is something that we aspire to and we believe can play an important role in the life of our community. If you would like to help make this a reality , please contact us and let's work together to make it happen.
