The Southwestern Yacht Club will host U.S. Sailing’s 2012 national Disabled Sailing Championships, Oct. 26-28. The event features 11 races to be sailed over three days in San Diego harbor between Shelter-Harbor Islands and Coronado Island.

Participants with varying levels and types of disabilities are expected from across the U.S. and Canada, including paraplegics, amputees, and blind sailors. Able-bodied sailors sometimes crew with the disabled. The number of sailors on board depends on the craft and the classification of the disability.

The regatta is administered by the U.S. Disabled Sailing Championship Committee and designated a Grade 1 event.

Southwestern Yacht Club is one of the largest, oldest and most prestigious yacht clubs in San Diego. Founded in 1925, it has developed into a full-service operation, with nearly 750 members embracing all forms of yachting, fishing, and social activities.
