Getting veterans on the water can provide physical, mental and emotional therapy for a variety of injuries and illness. Sailing is an outlet to cope with the long term effects of PTSD, brain injury, amputation, paralysis and nerve damage…plus it’s really fun way for our warrior sailors to express their most natural abilities: teamwork and competitive drive.


Start a lifelong bond with the sea with a three day sail training camp. Our professional coaches are trained in adaptive sailing and will have you at the helm of a sailboat on your first day!


For graduates of our Basic Training camps, these three day camps offer an opportunity to hone their sailing skills and lay the groundwork for inshore racing. We use higher performing boats like the J/22 and J/70 – the same used by amateur and professional sailors around the globe.


The Warrior Sailing Team races against some of the top disabled and able bodied sailors from around the country. Graduates from our program represent Warrior Sailing at the elite level of the sport.

Warrior Sailing Challenge Cup Trophy participants,

Thank you for your donation and efforts in the Warrior Sailing Program Challenge Cup Trophy. This was the second event the trophy was put on the line, and I appreciate all of your efforts both financially and competitively. I have formulated the final tally and scores!

The combination of 'style points' and racing placement put the 'Just A Friend' crew at the top of the list!

'Just a Friend' will get their name and event put on the trophy for the Sail for Hope 2016! The trophy will then travel to the next event, and be put on the line again for future awareness and donations to be made for our cause.

The challenge cup raised an additional $4,150 for WSP, Tad Foundation, and the Red Cross! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We look forward to seeing where your hard earned money went to help both warriors and youth sailors in Newport in 2017!

An honorable mention shout out goes to Bruce Gibson for his 'style points' onboard the Tad Foundations youth entry onboard 'Daring' during Saturday's race! Thanks for the effort Bruce!

-Ben Poucher
