Fishing with me!

Fishing is one of my favorite activity. I do pier fishing around San Francisco Bay. During my training for "Paddling From Europe To Asia" I am hoping to get into kayak fishing as well.
I want my website, www.theblindcaptain.com to be a platform where blind and sighted fisherman can connect and go fishing together.
If you are a blind fisherman looking for a sighted fishing buddy or if you are a sighted fishing enthusiast who wants to volunteer please contact me at [email protected]

Sailing in San Francisco Bay

If you are looking for an accessible sailing program in San Francisco check out The Bay Area Association of Disabled Sailors (BAADS). BAADS seeks to make all aspects of sailing accessible. To fulfill this mission, they offer weekly dinghy sailing, keelboat sailing, and Veterans sailing†out of South Beach Marina, adjacent to ATT Park.†
