International Day of People with Disability – 3 December 2019

Know them for their ability, not for disabilities.
TODAY is the #InternationalDayofDisabledPersons –
3 December 2019, a day that aims to promote understanding of people with disabilities and support for their dignity, rights and well being.
On the 2nd February 2019 we had the official opening of the First SA National Sailing Centre for people with
disabilities, taking place at the Milnerton Aquatic
Club.
Milnerton Aquatic Club is proud and privileged to be associated with the SV14 Sailing Program, designed by Alex Simonis and Maarten Voogd who took up the challenge to design a new & affordable competitive boat for people with disabilities.
This special boat is a two-person dinghy designed for people with disabilities & other physical impairments.
Thanks to our sponsors we have ordered ‘5’ SV\14 boats from China, due to a delay in manufacture they have not arrived yet unfortunately, but we are expecting them to arrive early next year 2020. We look forward to their arrival.
See the SV\14 Website for more information about this boat: sv14.org
