Richard Ramos, a former sailor who suffers from a disabling spinal cord injury following a diving incident, thought he would never be able to sail again. After meeting Aleef Mahmud, an engineer from RIT through Community Boating, INC., the two created an apparatus that would allow Richard and others with similar injuries to pursue their marine passions.
Rorke Miller was nominated by a member of his sailing community for his involvement in the SAIL Champion Program, which aims to help at-risk youth through the therapeutic activity of sailing. As director of the program and co-founder of the RED8 Boatworks, Miller created a positive environment where young adults could seek guidance and training for a better future.
Donald Backe of Annapolis, Maryland was nominated by a member of his sailing community for creating the Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating (C.R.A.B) organization, whose mission is to inspire and teach the disabled to sail. Don founded C.R.A.B. in 1991 so that sailing could be experienced by physically and mentally challenged individuals, as well as those who aren’t able to participate in the sport for financial reasons. Because of Don’s tenacity and will, C.R.A.B. has evolved into a four-sailboat fleet.
