Sailing with low vision

Whittaker, Stephen G. & Lovie-Kitchin, Jan E. (1991) Sailing with low vision. Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, 85, pp. 205-207.


The key to the rehabilitation of a complex activity, such as sailing, involves the determination of specific goals or subtasks. For each specific goal, both visual and nonvisual mechanisms are considered. This report identifies the specific goals that should be met to enable an experienced skipper to maintain his or her ability to sail a yacht. Mechanisms are described that either failed or enabled achievement of the specific goals.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
