Harvard University Announces Partnership Between Harvard Varsity Sailing Team and Sail To Prevail
After a three-year pilot program, Harvard University announced on Wednesday, September 28, 2016, a formal partnership with Sail To Prevail – The National Disabled Sailing Program. The Harvard Varsity Sailing Team members, in conjunction with the Sail To Prevail certified sailing instructors, teach disabled children and adults sailing skills and associated universal life-skills, including leadership, teamwork and self-confidence. Harvard Coach, Michael O’Connor, has engineered a system whereby the disabled program operates along side the regular Varsity practices, so as to obtain maximum outcomes for both the Harvard Sailors and disabled participants alike. The disabled participants are residents of the metropolitan Boston area, including the Cambridge, Brighton and Allston communities. The program takes place on the Charles River at the Harvard Sailing Center at 45 Memorial Drive, in Cambridge, MA.
