The National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic (NVSSC), taking place in San Diego September 18-21, promotes rehabilitation of body and spirit by teaching summer sporting activities to Veterans with significant physical or psychological impairments. Veterans had the opportunity to sail the San Diego Bay and enjoy a friendly race against one another.
For the 5th year, Challenged America will host the sailing event. Over 100 Challenged America volunteers will spend a week helping and coaching disabled veterans on the water and on the docks. Challenged America’s Martin 16 boats and equipment are designed and built specifically to allow individuals with all levels of disability drive and handle the boat by themselves under the supervision of a specially trained companion sailor.
