Sailing to the Paralympics

Jen French’s love for the water all started with a date.

“My husband took me windsurfing on our second date,” she says.

Her sailing teammate, Jean Paul Creignou, started on the water when he was a child in Europe.

“When you go sailing, you just step out in the water and you’re in a different world right away,” says Creignou. “It’s just very peaceful.”

What they say brings an extra challenge to their sport is sailing with a disability.
