I have been involve in a documentary called "Sense the Wind". This documentary has been in the process for 4 years now following four talented blind sailors! I have filmed on this project just this year.
Sitting in the airport typing this, I am having a hard time expressing the wonderful experience it is working with these people! There is no difference on the race course than any other sailor trying to win, but off the course they have more in common and have enjoyed building relationships with each other over the years.
The documentary will come out next year and I will post here when and where it will be shown. It will describe how the blind sailors, can sail and also what they do when they go home, just like the rest of us, home to their family and work.
