Our mission is simple and three-fold.
Use sailing and the ocean as a therapeutic platform to foster healing in our military community. It can be easy and convenient to believe that the only ones impacted by war are those who travel overseas to fight it. In reality, the impact of war touches the lives of everyone around the soldier or veteran as well. This affected community includes current active duty soldiers, retired veterans, and family members or friends of our fellow citizens in green. Through our events, we aim to connect the sailing and military communities to employ the curative powers of sailing and thwart the veteran suicide epidemic.
Spread post-traumatic stress (PTS) and veteran suicide awareness. We do this via our sailing programs and our many annual events. The first step to solving a problem is always making sure people are aware that the problem exists.
Honor and remember Our Mates. We are on the front lines of a war at home. Our Mates ensure that the memory of those who lose this battle lives on. Our Mates also function as a physical symbol of just how urgent this crisis is.
