Experience the only ride-on sailing simulator in Michigan
Sailing has a positive association for most people but it is perceived as unattainable by many. Virtual Adaptive Sailing makes sailing more accessible by using a sailing simulator, which allows people to practice in a safe and controlled environment off the water. Sailing is one of the few universal sports that allow people of all physical abilities to participate together and at a comparable performance level. By creating a shared experience that promotes both physical and mental engagement, sailing therapy has proven to be highly effective for veterans and individuals with physical and developmental disabilities. Virtual Adaptive Sailing is an all-volunteer, nonprofit, community program in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Virtual Adaptive Sailing is based on successful programs at the Johns Hopkins affiliated Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, MD, and Otara spinal unit in Auckland, New Zealand.
