Able Bodied Team Members Each boat will be crewed by two sailors with disabilities and one able bodied sailor (AB). The AB will assist in an action/activity that the sailors cannot do, must be able to take command of the boat in an emergency situation and must be able to move about the cramped cockpit of an Ideal 18 safely. Participants may bring their own AB or an AB will be provided by the Organizing Authority upon request.

Boats/Adaptations The Organizing Authority will provide adapted Ideal 18’s for fleet racing. The competitor is responsible for a refundable boat damage deposit of $500.  Adaptations will be made to each boat reflecting each sailor’s disability per the Notice of Race. Other adaptations may be permitted by the Organizing Authority – such as alternative tiller extensions, suction hand holds, but no extra purchase systems may be added nor any holes drilled into any of the borrowed boats. The additional adaptations must be approved by the Organizing Authority and adaptations should not increase the advantage over other competitors.

Skippers shall belong to their National Governing body. All disabled sailors are eligible to compete and the organizing Authority encourages people with any manner of disability to participate. Note, you do not have to have a US Sailing certified disability to participate.

This fee includes racing costs, Ideal 18 charter, all breakfasts and lunches, dinners, beverages and snacks and the awards ceremony. Full boat entry fee is due at time of registration. There is a $75 per AB brought as part of a team.
