Special Olympics Wisconsin has partnered with the University of Wisconsin – Madison Hoofers Sailing Club to offer a recreational and unified sailing experience on beautiful Lake Mendota. Athletes and their partners sail together aboard differing sizes of keel-boats depending on experience levels. Participants can just sit and soak up the sun, or try their hand at basic sailing maneuvers such as tacking or jibing. The experience is unique and the memories lasting.
No experience is necessary. Each athlete may bring one chaperone (chaperones are optional). Athletes will sail for 2 hours followed by a pizza social. Participation is limited so make sure to register!
Athletes and partners that want to learn more about sailing can apply for a discounted Hoofer Membership that can be used to take 1:1 lessons and more. For Hoofer Membership, contact Don Wigington at DWigington@SpecialOlympicsWisconsin.org.
