Working to help NYC area Veterans and Servicemembers through year-round sailing programs
Sailing classes, excursions, and instruction for Veterans and Servicemembers. Primarily goal is to use sailing to help with PTSD and other adaptive needs, but all Veterans can inquire about availability.
Awesome experience and an awesome group of people. Sailing was a ton of fun and I'm looking forward to the next time and maybe even learning how to actually sail... The young men, their family, and the club members are just fantastic people who took great care of us. They truly care.
I went on a smaller sailing trip with these folks and it was actually pretty awesome. They put you on privately owned boats with experienced sailors (the boat owner) and a couple other vets/spouses/supporters/law enforcement and everyone on the boat does something during the trip to help keep the boat moving. I took a sailing class years ago and forgot most of it, but our boat captain was really great about telling me what I needed to do and how things worked, answering my questions. It was a good day on the water, lets you really forget any issues you are having physically and mentally. I look forward to events with this organization in the future. They could do a better job of advertising their events and organizing the trips in advance, though, so you know when they are happening, but once you are there everything is so friendly and pleasant.
Excellent! I came with a group and had a lot of fun with everyone.
The trip was outstanding. Although nervous, the crew eased my fears. They were hospitable, kind, and very humble. The captain even gave me an invitation to come back any time. It was an experience I'll never forget.
Awesome trip! Went with a group for a day trip.
I had a lot of fun when we went on the sailing trip. It was very peaceful and the people were very nice and courteous. I would recommend this to anyone. Thanks again.
