SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (CBS 58) – The Para World Sailing Championships are underway in Sheboygan.

For the past week, around 100 athletes from 40 countries have been competing in the annual event.

“It’s exciting to be here,” Massachusetts native Eli Workman said. “It’s really awesome to see both that I can be a serious sailor and to realize I'm at a caliber where I can compete here.”
