SRB Goes sailing for the evening

At our April meeting we learned about an amazingly successful boating program called "Able Sail". This program places handicapped participants in the cockpit of a sailboat with access to the controls and a qualified companion to instruct and assist if necessary. The Able Sail program has been operating successfully for many years and takes place right here in Burlington at the LaSalle Park Marina.
