The College of Charleston will host the Wounded Warrior Sailing Squadron Regatta again on May 9 at the J. Stewart Walker Sailing Center at Patriots Point in Mount Pleasant, S.C.
This will be the second year in a row the college has hosted the event.
Last year, Jacob Raymond and two other college sailing instructors volunteered to teach a three-day sailing clinic to over a dozen veterans.
"I know what sailing has meant to me and how much it helped me," Raymond said. "To be able to give something back to these guys has been a huge privilege and honor for me."
The college offers disabled veterans the opportunity to sail with a modified J/22 sailboat. The boat was donated by Doug Peterson, a local sailor.
Alumnus Kurt Oberle, owner of High and Dry Boatworks, donated his time to install a bench, seat and handles in the sailboat's cockpit area.
The National Sailing Hall of Fame will partner with the college to organize the event.
