OUR MISSION:RETURN VETERANS TO PEACE

There are many many veterans from our past and recent wars that feel lost and hopeless.
Veterans under sail was founded in Crescent city CA on Christmas day 2015 by one man with a desire to help fellow veterans .With no funds or job, he contacted friends who operate a 5013c winds of freedom charity ,with their help he found, a semi abandoned,  yachts he then had donated,both yachts had been on land storage for five years ,but with years at sea as a captain, he saw a diamonds in the rough .One is for sale, a small 25 foot day sailor sold),one is undergoing full restoration Using every dime he can obtain to restore a 45 foot world class blue water sea crossing ketch yacht. With the sole job of taking war veterans on a voyage of self discovery and healing from the traumas of war.
The suicide rate is shocking and a true statement of the traumas of war .Our mission is the rediscovery of self ,to the veterans that need our help so so much. As we are a 5013c charity, your donations of boats cars motorcycles or any thing of value is fully tax deductible .we also need volunteers to help restore her,sail her and help veterans under sail any way you can .These men and woman who gave so much for us now need our help .This is your chance here and now! please help us restore our brave men and women to true peace.
The photos below are what she is, a ferocement hull that needs to be scraped to bare cement the rudder welded, the cabin mold removed, the 50 ft masts reset, the motor checked and made seaworthy ,and the second picture as to what she will be again.
Once she's back at sea she will, as seasons permit, be sailing from Seattle to San Deigo. Stopping for a week at ports along the entire west coast taking as many veterans as possable for day trips. out to points of intrest to visit islands, and ports of call along the way .Our top donators they will be invited to come along.
