Reinstate sailing as a sport in the 2020 Paralympic Games!

This petition had 18,028 supporters


On the 31st January 2015, the International Paralympic Committee announced the sports that would take place in the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games - sailing wasn't one of them.

Sailing is so widely participated in and offers such a physical, technical and tactical challenge. Team GBR won the first ever Paralympic Sailing Gold Medal in 1996 - it has been a lifeline to some people and it really should be in the Paralympic Games!

There is still one space left for a sport in the 2020 games, and we believe Paralympic Sailing deserves it!

Please contact the International Paralympic Committee and let them know what you think about the removal of sailing from the Paralympic programme!

If more people write to them, they will realise that they have made such a terrible decision!
