The IFDS Disabled Sailing World Blind Match Racing Championship will take place on the waters of Lake Michigan in Sheboygan, WI, USA beginning with opening ceremonies on September 09, 2014 and ending with the final race, awards and closing ceremonies September 14, 2014.

Six teams from five different nations are expected to represent their respective countries of Australia, Great Britain, Italy, USA, and Canada. Each team is made up of a crew of three sailors, each classified as B1 or B2 blind competing for the World Championship – the second competition ever to be held with no sighted coach on board.

Teams race head-to-head in equally matched Sonar keelboats equipped with the Homerus Autonomous Sailing system. Buoys with a unique sound signal mark the course and each boat has its own sound signal that changes when on port or starboard tack.
