Adaptive Sailing with Nantucket Community Sailing New in 2021, for sailors with special needs who are interested in sailing, please consider Nantucket Community Sailing’s Wednesday morning Adaptive Sailing Lesson slot. First-time, as well as experienced sailors, ages 5 and up, are welcome. NCS aims to accommodate both physical disabilities and intellectual disabilities, as we are able, as well as sailing specifically for individuals on the autism spectrum, and those going through physical or emotional therapy. Thanks to our donors, there will be no cost for these sails. These sails will carry on the wonderful legacy established by Paul Callahan’s Nantucket’s Sail to Prevail, which will no longer be operating on Nantucket. Contact NCS Program Director emily@nantucketsailing.org to schedule.
