Blind Sailing.

A blind man can ski and sail all by himself: "From the sea... to the slopes... Ed Gallagher is doing it all-blind!

He thought he would never sail again, until he came up with a remote guidance system.

Genoa, named after Ed's guide dog, is a camera mounted inside these glasses. It's hooked up to a computer that Ed carries with him. It has a microphone and ear piece...allowing Ed to use internet video call...and call someone to talk him through the process."
