BoardSafe contracted with Brockport, NY, to install adaptive launches along the Erie Canal. This is the first of many more to come along the canal. There are big plans to provide ADA access along the Erie Canal. Rochester Accessible Adventures received a grant to purchase adaptive equipment associated with the project. The city of Rochester gave Brockport $7k to help fund the click-a-launch and related boarding equipment.

Paddling on the NYS Canal System is an increasingly inclusive sport. Many municipal and NYS DEC docks have been improved to allow handicapped access. Rochester Accessible Adventures (RAA) helps companies make recreation on the canal system simple and inexpensive for people with disabilities and their families and friends.
