SHEBOYGAN, Wis., Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The best amateur sailing professionals from around the world will compete this September 9-14 in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. What's exciting about this competition is that the participants are all blind.
Event organizers announced the participants of this international event will include teams from:
- Great Britain
- United States
Each team consists of three crew members, each IBSA classified as B1 or B2 blind. With restricted vision, sailors rely on acoustic buoys, and a unique sound system.
The International Association for Disabled Sailors, in conjunction with Sail Sheboygan and the Sailing Education Association of Sheboygan(SEAS) will host the International World Championship of Blind Match Racers September 9-14 on Wisconsin's Lake Michigan Shore. Supporting this special event with volunteers is the International Lions Club, Wisconsin Lions Club and RCS Empowers, Inc. Rehabilitation Center of Sheboygan.
Because Match Racing is a series of races between two boats at a time, the sport is easy to follow and spectator-friendly, even to the sailing novice. SEAS and Blue Harbor Resort & Spa will host spectator stations for the public with a clear view of the race course. A spectator boat is slated to take spectators to the race course. The public is invited to visit the hospitality area or to go out onto the water to watch the action first-hand.
