The Labor Day Issue: The Sail CT Access Program

I have worked very hard at updating the Connecticut Social Security Disability Lawyer Blog on a weekly basis.  Today is Labor Day and I figure that it is OK to blog about a subject that is a bit lighter than my usual Monday night commentaries about the fascinating world of Social Security Disability Law in Connecticut and Massachusetts. 
This week I want to tell you about my sailing trip with a wonderful group --called CT Sail Access-- that offer persons with special needs the opportunity to enjoy sailing.      
As my readers know by now, from time to time, I like to use this blog to acknowledge the work of organizations in our community that are helping persons with disabilities and/or chronic illnesses.  I was very well impressed with CT Sail Access and encourage my readers to visit their site at and, consider volunteering and/or participating in their programs. 
As a Social Security Disability Lawyer I hear many unfortunate stories of how my clients have lost the ability to enjoy the outdoors as a result of their disabling conditions.  This organization allows persons with disabilities the opportunity sail a fully adapted and equipped sailboat: allowing "challenged persons to move beyond disabilities so that they may focus on abilities".
