Portuguese sailors were on the water again yesterday with Escola Nacional de Vela Adaptada near Porto, Portugal.  Sailors participating in training included Pedro Carvalho, Sónia Agra Amorim, Luisa Graça, Fernando Pinto, and Manuel Soares.



Last weekend, a number of the Portuguese sailors were in Palma De Mallorca, Spain for the ISAF Sailing World Cup Mallorca. Last month, a number of sailors training with Escola Nacional de Vela Adaptada participated in the  PAN Access held in Póvoa do Varzim, Portugal, where they did relatively well.


Escola Nacional de Vela Adaptada is a disability sailing organization dedicated to making sailing accessible to as many people as possible through inclusive practices.
