Sailors with disABILITIES

ABC RN Breakfast: SWD and the Sydney Hobart 2014

As the crews of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race gear up for another gruelling contest this Boxing Day, there's one crew with an even more ambitious goal than just getting to Tasmania in good time.

The 'WOT EVA' boat, now in its twentieth year of competing, is partly crewed by a team of people with disabilities.

As well as being the skipper of the boat, David Pescud is the driving force behind 'Sailors with disABILITIES', an organisation that takes disabled young people out on the water throughout the year.
