Veterans On Water

Sailing is often recommended for veterans as a therapeutic outlet that combines the challenge of seamanship with the serenity of being on the water. As an expression of continuing gratitude for their service, The WaterFront Center provides this program at no cost to veterans, retirees, & active-duty service members.


Adaptive Sailing

When these sailors get on the water, they leave their differences on the dock. Powered by volunteers and designed for children, adolescents, and adults with physical, sensory, intellectual, and mental health disabilities, this program ensures that sailing is a sport everyone can enjoy.
