Adaptive Sailing at Presque Isle

For more than a decade, the Erie Adaptive Sailing Experience has offered young people with disabilities a day of sailing and now kayaking at Presque Isle Bay.
August 2, 2014 - It was all smiles this morning for some young Shriners Hospitals for Children - Erie patients as they hit the waters at Presque Isle Bay for a day of adaptive sailing.

About ten patients took part in the annual Erie Adaptive Sailing Experience, hosted at the Bayfront Maritime Center.

This is the only adaptive sailing program in Pennsylvania and it allows people with physical disabilities the chance to independently sail and kayak.

Event coordinators said this annual event wouldn't be possible without the help of countless volunteers.
