At the end of August ten sailors from six countries, supported by their coaches, attended the first ISAF Paralympic Development Program clinic in Weymouth and Portland, Great Britain.
Led by Betsy Alison, US Sailing Paralympic Coach and Chair of the Disabled Sailing Committee, with support from Matt Grier, Royal Yachting Association Paralympic Development Coach and Jacob Haug, a 2.4mR coach sailors and coaches were put through their paces.
Throughout the clinic sailors benefited from on-water expertise, sailing in the Paralympic one-person keelboat, the 2.4mR, as well as daily on-shore briefings. Video published on Oct 1, 2015.
