Sailing takes many forms; you can cruise, race or simply potter around in all kinds of boats, on the sea or inland water. It is one of the very few sports in which able-bodied sailors and disabled sailors can participate on equal terms.
The Para World Sailing Committee is responsible for sailing for people with disabilities worldwide. The committee is responsible for the Paralympic Sailing Programme including Events and Equipment selection. It promotes, assesses and supports programmes for disabled sailing run by their Member National Authorities (MNAs) .
