Cook has Stargardt disease this is an inherited retina disorder. The diseases cause slow and gradual loss of central vision. This is something that Cook is grown to adapt to.

He said “In the past three years I have lost most of my central vision. Now, it is like if I look directly at people I won’t be able to see them. In a layman language you can understand this in a way that is just like a white blur in front of me directly,” he said.

The sailors who are visually impaired have to rely on the sound of wind and buoys, sound and communication with their teammates.
