In 1990, Bonnie Gibson and Bobbie Reed took 15 blind people sailing on a 40-foot sailboat. Each year, they took more people out and enlisted more skippers to assist. Now, although Bonnie and Bobbie are still actively involved in the event, it has grown so large that it is sponsored by WSA-OC and hosted by the American Legion Post 291 Family. Over 240 blind or visually impaired adults and their escorts will spend the day sailing with volunteers from WSA-OC and the American Legion Post 291 Family.

Approximately 45 skippers and boats from the community are needed to participate in this worthwhile event. Over 150 volunteers are needed to act as escorts, servers, crew, guide dog sitters and more.  Click Here for the volunteer form. If you would like to be of assistance, or you would like to donate items for the fund-raising drawing or service dog gift bags, please Click Here for a contributor form or contact WSA-OC at info@wsaoc.org   WSA-OC is a 501(c)(3) corporation and donations may be tax deductible.  Click Here! to see the most recent event brochure.
