Letter: Healing Through Heeling

Editor’s note: An article in our August issue, “Sail Ahead: Healing Wounded Veterans Through Sailing,” has generated a very positive response.

I was pleased to skipper a J/105 on the July 22 Veterans’ Sail in Oyster Bay. The veterans on our boat were excited about the experience. [Sail Ahead Co-Founder] Kilian Duclay acted as first mate for the trip. Kilian spent time instructing the veterans on handling a sailboat (in this case a racing/cruising sloop). As a result of the experience, I’ve decided to offer my services to the Sail Ahead team moving forward.
