Sailing Angels

Sailing Angels introduces the joy of sailing to children with special cognitive and physical needs (eg. Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Blindness, Deafness, MR, physical mobility issues, etc.), as an opportunity for education and recreational therapy. We provide sailing adventures at no cost to the participants.

Although our primary focus has been to provide this unique nautical “hydro-therapy” experience to those children & young adults with special needs, we have expanded our scope to include special needs adults as well as those who have gallantly served and sacrificed so much in our behalf: our Wounded Warriors and their families. We Sailing Angels welcome these special men & women with open arms!
