We even have a Sea Eagle that flies around. You can usually see them every Thursday
If you are lucky, you can even see dolphins. This photo was taken where we sail. Sometimes the Dolphins will swim beside the boats
Volunteers are critical to the success of a program such as Sailability, and this can be a great part time interest for retired or sem-retired men and women.
