People often ask us, 'Why sailing?' 'What are the advantages of sailing for blind people?' We commissioned a survey to find out the answers. Here are just a few of the results.
An astounding 92% of the people we surveyed believed that sailing promotes team work, with 89% of people agreeing it increases a persons confidence and self reliance. Many people even said the best thing about sailing is that it gives Visually Impaired people the chance to compete against able bodied people, in a very equal opportunity. Furthermore, only 56% of people believe sailing to be physically demanding, indicating that is an accessible sport for all!
