Things to Know

DISCLAIMER:
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.
