Slingshot Golf

Invented by Josh Basile, a C4 quadriplegic, this adaptation is designed to work for everyone. In 2011, after watching a round of golf as a spectator with his dad, Josh dreamt of a pendulum putting mechanism that could rotate back and forth on a framed structure that could hit a ball. That morning he created the first working prototype and then soon after started coming up with ideas for hitting the long ball. The most accurate device that he tested was a hand-held slingshot. This is how slingshot golf was born.

Many rounds later Josh added a protractor to the shaft of the putter in order to make it easier to calibrate the distance and power of a given shot. With the two main devices in place, Josh then made detailed rules in order to make the game competitive. Click here to learn more about Slingshot Golf Rules.

Challenged Sailors San Diego

The US Census Bureau estimated that nearly one in five people in our country have a disability. Many of these people have had to learn to live with restrictions on their mobility and independence. Challenged Sailors San Diego’s adaptive sailing program is designed to minimize these restrictions for our sailors. Learning the skills to maneuver a boat throughout the waters of San Diego Bay provides a sense of confidence, autonomy, and accomplishment that can have a significant positive effect on many aspects of the sailors’ lives.

The volunteers and participants of Challenged Sailors San Diego have experienced the transformative nature of adaptive sailing personally. Some are very experienced sailors, some are beginners but all have seen a tremendous improvement in their lives through adaptive sailing.

Capt. Jack Sparrow - in Pirates of the Caribbean - said, “a sailboat is not just a mast or sails or a rudder; a sailboat is freedom”. For those with a disability that significantly limits their mobility on land, that statement is a reality.
