Project Description

Blindsail SF Bay

BlindSail SF Bay was founded in 2007 under the name of Marin Sailing School Program for the Blind. Last season, with the closing of Marin Sailing School, we changed our name, but our mission remains true!

BlindSail SF Bay provides persons who are blind and visually impaired the opportunity to learn the fundamental skills of sailing and the basic principles of seamanship. The students learn to sail through the use of creative and adaptive methods in a hands-on, mainstream teaching environment. The objective is the same as for sighted sailors: to harness the power of the wind and to experience all the challenges and rewards of sailing.
