The Offshore Sailing School will host a regatta for the Wounded Veterans Adaptive Sailing Program on Oct. 5-6 at the Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina in Fort Myers Beach.
The Wounded Veterans Adaptive Sailing Program is designed to work within the vision and mission of Wounded Veterans Retreat Program, which is “to enhance the lives of our wounded veterans and their families, and to help reduce the amount of veterans’ suicides nationwide.”
Offshore Sailing School will provide use of its Colgate 26 fleet and instructors to conduct an orientation of the vessels and local waterways, and run the regatta for the 20 wounded veteran participants who have progressed through WVRP’s Adaptive Sailing Program.
