ADA Celebration

As many of you know Miles Moore founder of FunToSAIL and Access To Outdoors (ATO) has been a large influencer in facilitating access to sailing, other water sports, and marine/outdoor facilities to persons with disAbilities.

If you notice in the Lessons section of this site we offer accessible/disAbled sailing specific classes/programs and also run the disAbled Hobie 16 sailing world championships annually, officially called the Hobie 16 Trapseat Invitationals. In addition we have worked with the Forest Service, BLM, and others to improve or create accessible marine and camping facilities.
