Australian Peter Beard is in Halifax to compete in a Rio 2016 Paralympic sailing qualifier, as well as tick off a big item from his life's bucket list.

The International Association for Disabled Sailing Worlds 2014 is underway in Halifax.

Beard, who lives with the rare neurological condition multiple system atrophy (MSA), along with his friends and wife Yves, decided to help him live his dream and spread awareness for MSA.
