With many years of experience serving this community and hundreds of disabled sailors already sailing the WindRider AS trimaran, only minor modifications were required to develop the racing models WindRider AS1 and WindRider AS2 for the Paralympics.
Here is the recent proposal to set up active grassroots sailing and organize local competitions in both one-person and two-person classes, not including any volume discounts:
Para World Sailing proposal, minimal requirement:
6x Weta x $18,000 (after mods), for minimal disability, one-person class: $ 108,000,
6x Hansa 303 x $8,000 (after mods), for severe disability, two-person class: $ 48,000 (providing launch ramp and pontoon are available),
6x 2.4m x $25,000 (after mods), for minimal disability, extra one-person class: $150,000 (providing crane facilities are available),
Total minimum cost boats only: $156,000 ($ 306,000 including 2.4m class)
Here is the WindRider AS proposal:
6x WindRider AS1 / AS2 x $ 14,000 (after mods): $84,000, which takes the task of;
6 x WindRider AS grassroots version four-person, severe and minimal disability,
6 x WindRider AS1 performance one-person class, minimal disability,
