SailingHeals

Do you have a sail or power boat? Can you participate in "Sailing Heals" to be hosted at EYC on Friday, September 30, from 11:30am-3:30pm? EYC hosted the very first two Sailing Heals program here in Annapolis last October and in May of this year and the EYC Executive Board enthusiastically supports hosting the program again during 2016.

Sailing Heals is a Boston-based non-profit with a mission focused on taking individuals and their families or caregivers 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 caregivers and host them for complimentary 2 hour sails, often accompanied by a water-side lunch or picnic.

Here are ways that you can be part of this healing day on the water at EYC!

  • Boats/Skippers: Each boat is asked to host at least four (4) guests plus one (1) support volunteers (35' & larger preferred for sail boats). Please take two actions:
  • Contact Rob Greve, Co-Coordinator, with any questions and/or to let him know you want to participate. Rob will be the local point of contact and coordinating all the boats for the event.
