Veterans of America Sail To Prevail
Sail To Prevail – The National Disabled Sailing Program hosted its sixth Annual New England Paralyzed Veterans of America Sailing Clinic on the weekend of June 21-22. Fourteen participants enjoyed an extraordinary weekend of instruction, competition and recreational sailing aboard Sail To Prevail’s handicap-accessible sailboats.
“We feel privileged to be in our sixth year of honoring disabled Veterans who have served our country with dignity,” said Sail To Prevail CEO Paul Callahan. “It is always a privilege to host such an honorable group of people.”
The sailing days were complemented with much camaraderie at the annual Saturday night banquet where Veterans shared their experiences from not only the weekend but also their days of service.
Paralyzed Veteran participant, Bob Mazzarella, remarked, “Your dock…gives us a window onto a world which we would otherwise never see…. It took me back to a very long time ago and the excitement and promise of shining youth.”
Sail To Prevail will host another National Disabled Veterans Clinic during the week of July 21-25. For more information, contact Paul Callahan, firstname.lastname@example.org
