Our eleven-person Racing to Rio production crew reported for day two of official duty yesterday morning as Brad Kendell’s Never Say Never Pirate Campers arrived at the Clearwater Community Sailing Center for the first day of camp. While the campers learned the ropes from Brad – everyone’s favorite world-class sailor – our crew was standing by to capture the moments that help to create new champions.
Brad’s Never Say Never Pirate Camp aims to incite a love for sailing in disabled youth from all over the country. Brad firmly believes that the skills he acquired through the sport of sailing have helped him to better cope with the daily challenges that he faces having lost both of his legs. His hope is to share this attitude with others and to inspire these youths to turn their challenges into their strengths.
