The project created a catalog that details the technology and techniques currently available to aid visually impaired sailors as well as suggested future technology and techniques. The catalog and the project's recommendations will further advance the capabilities of the Sailing Club for the Blind and Partially Sighted in Denmark to sail recreationally and competitively. The catalog will be incorporated into the Danish Visual Impairment Information Centre's project "Sailing for the Visually Impaired," which will make information available in English and Danish.
