Re: Sailing opportunities for Wounded Vets???

Thanks everyone.

I'm somewhat familiar with the Wounded Warrior and Walter Reed programs down here and up in NY. From what I've been told these are mostly to get people out on the water for a fun week/weekend and are more of an orientation ride than formal training. Also, with the number of troops currently in treatment in the area, I don't like taking slots away from someone who could benefit more from it. Being able to get out away from the hospital for a few days here and there was a life saver for me and my family!

I like the idea of getting involved with a racing fleet. I'm curious how to go about it though. Without owning a boat or being a member of club, how do I make this happen?
