Through the combined efforts of host club American YC (Rye, NY) partnering with their neighbors from Larchmont YC, the world's first all women's disabled sailing event was held on the waters of Long Island Sound this year. Sailing as an adjunct to the third annual Robie Pierce One-Design Regatta, seven teams from the US and Canada competed.
“"t has been a longtime dream of women to have our own event to help get more women into adaptive sailing," said Canadian Sailing Team member Brenda Hopkin. "A group of us asked the organizers last year if they could put one on in 2013, and they did it in one year. We all had a ball."
