South Africa: Rolling Inspiration Interviews Wheelchair Sailors

Rolling Inspiration, a lifestyle publication committed to improving the quality, style, satisfaction and enjoyment of the lives of the mobility impaired, has produced its Jan/Feb issue.

This features a cover story on the Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST), which owns the only two tall ships in the world designed and built to enable people of all physical abilities to sail side-by-side as equals. The magazine interviewed two wheelchair users on board the vessel to find out just how exciting it is to take the helm, set the sails and keep watch at sea.

This month a Guide to Employing People with Disabilities (Part 2) accompanies the magazine.

The bi-monthly magazine is published by Word for Word Media and owned by the QuadPara Association. It works with other NGOs within the field of mobility impairments. Its focused content is committed to raising the awareness of the challenges, solutions, necessities, developments, regulations and advancements impacting on those who are mobility impaired as well as those around them who have a strong need to know and understand the full spectrum of requirements.
