The (AIMS) Racing Team, with crew members both with and without disabilities, is currently training for the Gateway To Hawaii Ocean Race from San Diego, California, to Nawiliwili Bay, Kauai, Hawaii. This, the newest and longest of the biennial West Coast to Hawaii races, with a start of June 25, 2002 and covering more than 2,323 nautical miles, is hosted by the Silver Gate Yacht Club on Shelter Island in San Diego. "Were ready mentally and physically," Ryan said. "Having San Diego businesses and national corporations join our team in support helps us tremendously with the financial requirements of competing in this race. What was once just a dream by a few of us with significant disabilities is quickly turning into reality. A challenge we will overcome, thanks to those who believe in our abilities."
