WMCA Regatta and dinner presentation

  1. 1. You are invited to support Challenged America at their third annual West Marine Challenged America Regatta Fundraiser Dinner and auction both live and silent to benefit the Challenged America adaptive sailing program For kids, veterans and adults with disabilities Friday & Saturday, June 10 & 11, 2011
  2. 2. In it’s 34 year history, Challenged America has grown from just a few boats, sailed by a few disabled sailors, to a fleet of 11 boats and hundreds of participants and volunteers. With weekly sailing instruction and competitive racing, our participants continually remind us that they truly do leave their disabilities at the dock.
  3. 3. Over the last few years, in addition to our regular participants, we have had the privilege of introducing sailing to groups from hospitals and rehabilitation centers all over San Diego, and to groups of children with a variety of disabilities . They have all learned their abilities can be unlimited and that sailing can be for everyone, able bodied and disabled alike.
  4. 4. In addition to our Shelter Island sailing program we are honored to support our troops by providing a sailing venue for the National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic . Recently disabled veterans come to San Diego from all over the country to participate in a week of summer sporting activities.
