Welcome to HealingWindsVermont!

We are a non-profit organization with a mission to provide respite sailing for cancer patients and their caregivers to relieve stress and anxiety through quality time together on the water.

We believe in celebrating what is beautiful about life and we use sailing as a tool to harness the healing properties of being on the water together. Our 3-hour excursions are at no charge due to the generosity of our wonderful supporters.

Patients and their families walk away from the experience with everlasting memories and strengthened bonds.

We take passengers by nomination. If you or someone you love is in treatment for cancer and would enjoy time together sailing on Lake Champlain please use the link below to nominate them for a sail.

Nominate them here.



All of our sails are provided FREE OF CHARGE. It is through the generosity of donors — both individual and corporate — that  this is made possible. Donations of any size allow us to continue to expand our services as our demand increases — right here in our community!
