An Inspirational Long Island Coastal Adventure
August 6-7, 2019
The IGHL/World T.E.A.M. Sports Coastal Team Challenge brings together teams of intellectually/physically disabled veterans, IGHL participants and adventurous IGHL staff-athletes for a two-day, 16 nautical mile, non-competitive kayak journey along the beautiful coast of Long Island. Starting at the Patchogue Town Beach, the participants paddled by oar and foot pedals eastward through the Great South Bay, making their first stop at the Bellport Yacht Club. The kayakers camped out under the stars at Smith Point Beach after the first days' activities. After a second day of working together against the elements and overcoming obstacles and challenges, the participants landed at Newport Beach in East Moriches for a congratulatory barbeque and awards ceremony.
Congratulations to all our IGHL participants for your commitment and dedication.
