We have had the pleasure of hosting the GB Blind Sailing squad at South Cerney over the tail end of 2019 and through our winter series. They borrowed boats from a number of our members and used them for training and joined in with us on club races. I have to say they are totally amazing sailors and put many established club racers to shame beating many off the line at the start. Each boat had two blind sailors and one person who could see but did not do any sailing, was just there to advise on other boats around and lay lines but the blind sailors did everything else. Was amazing to be part of and just shows how much sailing can be about feel rather than vision!  https://www.yachtsandyachting.com/news/229077/Blind-Sailing-in-Lockdown" rel="nofollow - https://www.yachtsandyachting.com/news/229077/Blind-Sailing-in-Lockdown
