Sailing is the foundation of our program. There is nothing like untying the lines and slipping away from the dock under the power of wind on sail to help veterans feel "at ease." We conduct day sails or sunset sails aboard a large catamaran out on beautiful Biscayne Bay. Our sunset sails are the most popular and are usually conducted as a "reunion" event for veterans and their spouses following redeployment.
Our "Learn to Sail" program continues the healing and reintegration process by teaching veterans a healthy, lifelong recreational skill. This course is taught by US Sailing certified volunteer instructors (who are also veterans) accompanied by recreational therapists from the Miami VA Medical Center. Those who complete the learn to sail class are encouraged to participate in local community sailing events.
