Since 2015 we’ve given sail training to veterans, future veterans and their families on the water to provide
physical, mental and emotional therapy for their injuries brought about by operational service. We provide
three programs; sailing training, experiential sailing, and wooden boat preservation. Learning to sail and
saving wooden boats are outlets for coping with PTSD, and traumatic injuries. Here, teamwork, community
and camaraderie is rediscovered through our educational programs in sailing, racing, voyaging, restoring
and preserving.
