A Day
Without Cancer.

Welcome to Healing Winds.

A Sailing Reprieve for Those Affected by Cancer and All Who Love Them

At Healing Winds, it is our mission to create lasting memories for individuals with cancer, and their loved ones, through the therapeutic experience of sailing.

We believe that sailing provides relief for individuals living with cancer.
Our sailing excursions are refreshing, relaxing, and spirit-lifting. We provide an opportunity to rebuild courage, love and relationships and we strive to create lasting memories.

Our 3-Hour sails are offered at no cost to our guests, thanks to the continued generosity of our individual donors and corporate sponsors.

If you or someone you love is in treatment for cancer and would enjoy time together sailing on Lake Champlain, nominate them for a Healing Winds sail!

NOMINATE SOMEONE SPECIAL

We Need Your Help.

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!

EVERY DONATION COUNTS

Hear how their time together on the water transformed their journey…putting wind back in their sails.
