    I am a 66 year old disabled male, I have survived a massive head injury, as well as massive leg injuries. There is a world wide disabled sailing club, Called 'Sailability'it opperates to let disabled people sail. On the water we are equal and free.Sailability is world wide, think about look up your nearest club, it can change your life.After all you have nothing to lose, a lot to gain. In my case in Sydney  N.S.W. Australia it costs me $A5:00 a sail, and we race sailboats every weekend and also win that is about as good as it gets. Just a suggestion but you never know  untill you give it a go. Wazza a dissabled sailor

      Good for you for pursuing your hobby by overcoming the obstacles. We have sailing and kayaking for people with disabilities in BC, Canada as well. I've never tried it yet but I've got friends who have. Have you ever tried sit-skiing? That would be a lot of fun too!
