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.

Support Warrior Sailing

Donations keep the sails full. We can't accomplish the things we do without generous support from people like you.

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!

CERTIFICATION & 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. As an American Sailing Association (ASA), we offer participants the opportunity to earn their ASA Basic Keelboat Certification. 

BEYOND OUR CAMPS

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.

Sneak Peek at the Warrior Sailing Program

Our Mission

Warrior Sailing provides maritime education and outreach for wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans. We do so by facilitating opportunities for skill development and building partnerships between the military and marine communities. Using sailing as a platform, Warrior Sailing positively impacts the participant’s physical and mental health while reconnecting them with the camaraderie and teamwork previously found in military service.

Our Values

The core values of the program are to:

Educate participants in the sport of sailing, sailboat racing and maritime safety.

Encourage participant technical, social and job skill development through leadership, teamwork, and self-reliance.

Empower participants with resources and opportunities for sustained engagement within the sailing community.

Warrior Sailing is a program of the USMMA Sailing Foundation, Inc. a 501(c)3 public foundation. Its mission is to actively solicit the donation of vessels to be used in various maritime programs for education and training. Learn more about the foundation at: http://usmmasailingfoundation.org.

This was a big step up from the J22 for most of the group - both in terms of comfort and sail handling. @ Newport Bridge
