Sail away. (Sports & Recreation).

Have you ever wanted to skipper a boat? Or, perhaps you're looking to develop your competitive nature through sailing. Either way, the Judd Goldman Adaptive Sailing Foundation (JGASF) in Chicago has been looking for you.

Formed in 1990 as a learn-to-sail program, JGASF provides classroom and on-the-water instruction to people with physical disabilities. Since 1990, more than 8,000 individuals have participated in this program.

JGASF has seven Freedom Independence 20-foot sailboats, three Sonars, and two 2.4-meter craft. The program consists of 12 hours of instruction (six, 2-hour lessons) for $85. Scholarships are available. Lessons are scheduled Wednesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
