Sense the Wind is a documentary journey into the sport of blind sailing. The film follows Matt, Nancy, Phil and Inky as they prepare for the Blind Sailing World Championships. This illuminating documentary sheds light on the unique difficulties that blind sailors overcome to race on the open water. Nancy and Phil must rely on their senses and skills to safely trim the sails and manage the pitching deck. As skippers, inky and Matt must navigate with an acute sensitivity to the wind, listening and reacting quickly to descriptive cues from sighted guides. This incredible story highlights what it takes to race, while blind, at the highest level. View the trailer for more.
