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 keelboats 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. Athletes and partners that want to learn more can apply for a discounted Hoofer Membership that can be used to take lessons and more.
Please check the SOWI events calendar for the next sailing opportunity.
