This will be a joint meeting with the Women's Sailing Association of Orange County (WSA-OC), the primary organizer of our annual Sailing for the Blind and Visually Impaired event scheduled for October 7 this year.  The following is from the Women's Sailing Association of Orange County website. 

"A very special, not-to-be-missed general meeting is planned featuring a filmmaker screening at the Great Hall at the American Legion Post, Newport Beach, CA of Sense the Wind: Blind sailors race across open water. The hour-long documentary will be followed by a Q&A with NY based Producer/Director Christine Knowlton.

Six years in the making, Sense the Wind, which follows the journey of four blind sailors as they train and compete in national and international regattas, is making its way around the globe in outreach and beginning distribution. The film was given a Humanitarian Award at the Socially Relevant Film Festival NY and has shown in Tokyo, Poland, Moscow, Canada and continues across the US."
