We offer patients and their caregivers a spirit-lifting day at sea!
At Sailing Heals, it is our mission to provide a free day of relaxation and joy for our patient guests— those who are undergoing treatment for cancer or dealing with the effects of a serious illness or injury—as well as their caregivers.
We couldn't do this without the partnership of many respected medical organizations; the gracious hospitality of yacht owners from many parts of the country; the sailing community; our corporate sponsors and, especially, our individual donors.

Thanks to all who attended the 5th Anniversary Celebration at the Corinthian Yacht Club!
I painted this as a symbol of the path cancer patients take – we cannot see the end but there is beauty along the way, despite it all. Thank you for bringing the beauty into lives of those who need it most!
At 53 feet, 44 tons, and at 7.8 knots, the polished wooden sailing yacht cut through gentle waves and a steady wind before tacking. “Ready about!” The distant words from a crew member could be heard followed by “Lee to helm!” The bow of the boat passed through the wind, sails flapping until they filled with air, heeling the boat over on its new course.
My mother Rosanne loved to make people smile. She was beautiful, goofy, and loved by many. A motto in her life "If the shoe fits, buy it in every color". She will be forever missed, especially by her husband of 53 years John.
