THE WARRIOR SAILING PROGRAM

Getting military service members 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.

BASIC TRAINING CAMPS

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!

ADVANCED TRAINING CAMPS

For graduates of our Basic Training camps, these 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.

Outreach & Opportunities

Warrior Sailing offers unique opportunities to  races against some of the top disabled and able bodied sailors from around the country, train on offshore experiences and earn sailing certifications. Graduates from our program represent Warrior Sailing at the elite level of the sport.

It is all about the fun-factor. Hear what Scott Craigle, San Diego graduate, has to say:
“As a wounded Iraq vet, I have been to several sports related courses...the Warrior Sailing course is the best course I have attended because of the infectious attitude of the staff and coaches to have fun, learn new skills, and to enjoy sail racing...guaranteed to put a smile on your face!”

Our impact is best told by our graduates. Here is Liz Shepherd
“As a black women I never imagined myself being involved in any water sports (that's why I went Army). Culturally and financially I was limited in my exposure to sailing (pictures and television were my reference points). However, thanks to the Warrior Sailing Camp, I was able to have a lifetime experience I never imagined to be possible. I discovered that I love sailing (and pretty good at it). Having the ability to manipulate the sailboat in response to the wind conditions by using natural mechanics (no motor) was amazing. It's just like living life; simply accepting things that cannot be changed, adjusting where you can while striving toward forward progress. Additionally, I was able to relax enough to become a great team mate and excellent team leader (therapeutic for my PTSD). So I say, THANK YOU to all those who contributed in order to make the Warrior Sailing Camp possible. Mission accomplished: Mission success!”
