Since 2015 we’ve given sail training to veterans, future veterans and their families on the water to provide physical, mental and emotional therapy for their injuries brought about by operational service. We provide three programs; sailing training, experiential sailing, and wooden boat preservation. Learning to sail and saving wooden boats are outlets for coping with PTSD, and traumatic injuries. Here, teamwork, community and camaraderie is rediscovered through our educational programs in sailing, racing, voyaging, restoring and preserving.
The information above can be found on the official website of Wooden Boats for Veterans. For more details about the organization and to find out how you can volunteer, please visit their website: https://www.vetsboats.org/
