Volunteer for the Sail for the Visually Impaired October 8, 2022

American Legion Yacht Club is preparing for the next Sail for the Visually Impaired event – October 8, 2022 –  and is seeking volunteers to skipper, crew and to provide boats.  Each year visually impaired guests and their escorts spend the day sailing with volunteers. This is a wonderfully successful event that involves over 150 volunteers and has been running since 1990.

The H20 is a perfect boat for this event. It is easy to get in and out, sits folks comfortably, and is low enough that participants can reach out an touch the water.
