SAIL FOR THE BLIND AND THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED
Saturday, October 17, 2015
10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
1990, Bonnie Gibson and Bobbie Reed took 15 blind people sailing on a
40-foot sailboat. Each year, they took more people out and enlisted
more skippers to assist. Now, although Bonnie and Bobbie are still
actively involved in the event, it has grown so large that it is
sponsored by WSA-OC and hosted by the American Legion Post 291 Family.
Over 240 blind or visually impaired adults and their escorts will spend
the day sailing with volunteers from WSA-OC and the American Legion Post
Approximately 45 skippers and boats from the community are needed to participate in this worthwhile event. Over 150 volunteers are needed to act as escorts, servers, crew, guide dog sitters and more.
