WEST HAVERSTRAW, N.Y. -- Helen Hayes Hospital in West Haverstraw will hold a special free presentation of the documentary "Sense the Wind: Blind Sailors Race Across Open Water" on Wednesday, March 16, followed by a question and answer session with blind sailing champion, Matt Chao.

Chao will answer attendees' questions about his more than 30 years of blind sailing, his multiple championship wins and more, as well as about his participation in Sense the Wind, which follows him and other members of his sailing team as they train and compete in the Blind National and World Sailing Championships.

The event, which begins at 6 p.m., is open to the public, and was made possible through a donation to the Helen Hayes Hospital Foundation in memory of Lorraine and Donald Merberg.

The documentary is facilitated by the Helen Hayes Hospital Adapted Sports program which, in partnership with the Nyack Boat Club, offers adapted sailing opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

The Adapted Sailing program kicks off the spring season with an adapted sailing clinic on Friday, May 20, from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Nyack Boat Club at 59 Gedney St.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required by April 20 at castellucciom@helenhayeshosp.org or by calling 845-786-4950.
