Whistler Adawaspptive and the Whistler Sailing Association are hosting two Adaptive Sailing Have-A-Go Camps on September 8 & 9, 2016 and September 10 & 11, 2016 on Alta Lake in Whistler, BC. This camp is open to children, youth or adults with a physical, cognitive or sensory disability. Sailing experience is not necessary. The two-day camps will each cost $120 plus $25 for a Whistler Adaptive 2016/17 membership. Space is limited in each camp, so sign up early.

Breaking News! – DSA Vancouver has generously donated a Martin 16 sailboat and trailer to WSA Whistler Adaptive Program! For the past few years we have borrowed a Martin from Vancouver and brought it up to Whistler for our adaptive camps in September. Now that we have our own Martin, fundraising efforts can focus on outfitting the boat with more adaptive technology such as a windlass or Sip-and-Puff system to allow for high-quadriplegic sailors to control the boat using their breath!
