Another non-windsurfing related post this morning (apologies!), but this is an important one. News is spreading like wild-fire that the IPC have decided that sailing will not be one of the sports making an appearance in the 2020 games. But thousands of people are already fighting back, and you can help too. All you need to do is click here to sign the petition to reinstate paralympic sailing. More details below:
On the 31st January 2015, the International Paralympic Committee announced the sports that would take place in the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games – sailing wasn’t one of them.
Sailing is so widely participated in and offers such a physical, technical and tactical challenge. Team GBR won the first ever Paralympic Sailing Gold Medal in 1996 – it has been a lifeline to some people and it really should be in the Paralympic Games!
