Sailing Heals’ essential mission is to take individuals and their families and caretakers
out on the water for a beautiful day of sailing and respite. Sailing Heals matches owners of beautiful boats (sailing or motorized) with patients and their caretakers and takes them out for half-day sails, sometimes followed by a lunch or water-side picnic.
Sailing Heals is pleased to partner with many respected organizations such as Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering, the New England circuit of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge, Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead Massachusetts and Nantucket Community Sailing, to name a few.
Our guests have found their days on the water to be profoundly important to the healing process. We can only provide these memorable and therapeutic experiences thanks to the generosity of our volunteers, our sponsors, our partnered affiliates and our board members. Please take a look around the site and let us know how you would like to be involved in this important mission!
