Sense The Wind : Blind Sailors race across open water is a documentary journey into the sport of blind sailing, following four blind sailors as they train and compete for the Nationals and  World Championships. Nancy and Phil must rely on their skills to trim the sails and be sure-footed crossing the deck. Skippers, Inky and Matt navigate with an acutely developed sensitivity to the wind using all their senses as they respond to descriptive cues from a sighted guide. They sail alert to a suddenly swinging boom or collision on open water. With Olympic level coaching competition is fierce. Friendships are forged as tensions rise in fleet racing. Off the water camaraderie is strong. Sense the Wind is a window into the lives of these four racers as they defy the obstacles of racing on open water, and on land as they navigate the challenges of career, family and everyday life.

The film is directed by first time filmmaker Christine Knowlton and produced by Elizabeth Delude-Dix an Emmy nominated filmmaker from Jamestown.
