CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard sailing coach Michael O'Connor and CEO of Sail to Prevail Paul Callahan attended the Adaptive Recreation Fair earlier this month to educate the community on the joint collaboration between the two organizations. Harvard and Sail to Prevail offers sailing to children with disabilities, taught by the Harvard sailing team and the Sail to Prevail instructors.
"It was a pleasure to assist the other fine community organizations to offer children and adults with disabilities an opportunity to experience the teaching lessons of sailing," O'Connor remarked.
Harvard sailing and Sail to Prevail joined the group of 21 different organizations to provide information and recreational experiences for people with disabilities.
Despite the challenging weather, hundreds of children with disabilities, caretakers, and volunteers gathered together at the 13th-annual event. It marked the first time Harvard and Sail to Prevail participated.
Sailing lessons for children with disabilities are scheduled at the Charles River for Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3:30 to 5:30, throughout September.
