Sailing Heals’ essential mission is to take individuals and their families or caretakers out on the water for a beautiful day of sailing and respite. Sailing Heals matches owners of beautiful boats (sailing or motorized) with patients and their caretakers and host them for complimentary 2 hour sails, often accompanied by a water-side lunch or picnic.

Sailing Heals is pleased to partner with many respected organizations such as Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center who honored us with two of their prestigious “one hundred”awards for 2013. A few of the several other organizations we work closely with are Cancer Care, Miami Children’s Hospital, The John Theurer Cancer Center, the New England circuit of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge, the Boston Yacht Club and Corinthian Yacht Club, both in Marblehead Massachusetts and Nantucket Community Sailing, to name a few.

Our guests have found their days on the water to be profoundly important to the healing process. We can only provide these memorable and therapeutic experiences thanks to the generosity of our volunteers, our sponsors, our partnered affiliates and our board members. Please take a look around the site, take a moment to “meet our team” and let us know how you would like to be involved in our mission to help more people escape for a spirit-lifting day at sea!
