THE MISSION OF SAILING HEALS is to provide a restorative, inspiriting day at sea for people navigating cancer and serious life-threatening illnesses.

Since 2011, more than 5,250 guests have participated in a free Sailing Heals sailing excursion. We are grateful for the collaboration with and support of medical organizations, cancer support groups, the sailing community, our corporate sponsors, and our individual donors. Sails and special events have been held in Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island, New York, Florida, and California.

Our 2024 sailing schedule will be published in April. Scheduled schooner sails will be available through September. We also have some wonderful, local volunteer host captains (primarily Boston North – South) who can accommodate guests aboard their vessels for 1-1, more intimate sail excursions. Please email us with your interest.

Sailing Heals’ participants often share that their experience on the water was a welcome escape from the stresses that come with navigating serious illness. Patients and caregivers can relax, socialize, and enjoy the moment.
