Sailors compete in Clagett regatta

In Rhode Island in mid-August, a different kind of regatta was held: blind sailors with sighted guides competed in the C. Thomas Clagett Jr. Memorial Regatta. Sailing in J/22s, Sengil “Inky” Inkiala (Watertown, Mass.) and crew Nancy Jodoin (West Brookfield, Mass.), sailing with sighted guides Ken Legler (Reading, Mass.) and Harry Berman (Hull, Mass.) won the 2008 Blind Sailing World Championship. This is the fifth time Inkiala has won the title. All the results of the 2008 Clagett races are available at the U.S. Sailing website.
