The Milwaukee Community Sailing Center (MCSC) will host the 2013 U.S. Disabled Sailing Championship, September 5 – 8. This is the first time this championship will be held on the Great Lakes. U.S. Sailing and local chairs Helen "Cookie" Mueller and John Archibald are organizing the championship.
Any sailor with a disability or disadvantage is invited to participate in the four-day event, which includes a racing clinic on Thursday with Betsy Alison, Coach of the U.S. Paralympic Team at U.S. Sailing. Races will take place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with an awards banquet on Sunday.
Lake Michigan provides some of the best sailing in the country, which MCSC takes full advantage of by providing a full array of classes from novice to expert. It has opened the world of sailing to thousands in southeastern Wisconsin by providing access to Lake Michigan for youth, the disadvantaged and individuals with disabilities.
