Regatta Offers Seafaring Experience to People with Disabilities

Multiple Seacoast boaters welcomed eager new crew members Sunday during the 21st annual Challenger's Cup Regatta, held by One Sky Community Services of Portsmouth and the Portsmouth Yacht Club. The event offers people who live with developmental disabilities an opportunity to work as crew members on seafaring boats.
"This is really the only chance that some of these people get to go on a boat all year," said Jesse Gage, chairman of One Sky Community Services. "Some have never been on a boat."
