U.S. Sailing has hired Betsy Alison (Newport, R.I.) as the full-time coach of the U.S. Disabled Sailing Team. Alison, a five-time Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year and two-time Yngling World Champion, has been working with athletes of the U.S. Disabled Sailing Team for several years, accompanying the U.S. Paralympic Sailing Team to the 2000 and 2004 Paralympic Games. Those of us who have seen Betsy in action in the Martin 16 down in St. Pete know she’ll be an outstanding asset to the team.
