We are passionate sailors; we do not claim to be medical experts in any way, shape or form. It is our strong recommendation that if you or someone you know needs help, you should seek help from professionals such as the Northport VA Medical Center. Some of the information on this site was provided by the VA.
We use sailing as a therapy platform. We invite wounded veterans on our sailboats and share our experiences with them. These veterans are not tourists, they are part of our team and many of them continue sailing to become skippers themselves. Some of the veterans we take on-board are healthy and others are suffering from depression, PTSD, brain injuries and so much more. The purpose of this page is to share information with our community at large.

About us
About US

Our crew of volunteers, skippers and veterans take pride in sailing many types of vessels all year long and in all weather. Our veterans are not just tourists on our boats, they are an integral part of the crew. When headed out on their first voyage our veterans all start as strangers and eventually become sailors through hands-on training. Many have become our close friends!...

Our Mates
Our 219 Mates

219 has become the symbol of our fight as every 10 days America loses the equivalent of one USMC Company at home. SailAhead aims to make a difference in the lives of local PTSD suffering veterans and their families. 219 is 1 less than 220, this 1 less is the symbol of the life we are working so hard to save.
