World Sailing and Para World Sailing are running a big campaign on social media with the aim of getting sailing reinstated in the 2028 Paralympic Games.
If you are a user of social media, we would love you to get involved with this campaign to get as many people behind it as possible. Here are some suggestions from the Para World Sailing team about how to engage. Please make sure you also tag @HansaClassUK in your posts so that we can share them too!
Our aim is to encourage our audiences to re-tweet, share and like our posts, and tag us in posts, to create a large and sustained social media discussion about our reinstatement.
