Sailing Heals returns to Camden Yacht Club

Sailing Heals, a national group that works with yacht clubs to offer sailing experiences for patients living with cancer and their caregivers, returned to Camden for its second year.

Last August was the first time the Camden Yacht Club hosted Sailing Heals. Before the event ended yacht club members were inviting the organization’s executive director, Trisha Boisvert, to return in 2019.

This July, the CYC and Sailing Heals hosted 28 patient and caregiver guests from Maine, according to Boisvert. She said she is happy Sailing Heals was invited back by the CYC. She thanked all of the captains “for the wonderful event,” and “the CYC volunteers, under the direction of Johanna Stinson, who were especially helpful.”
