Welcome to Healing Winds.
Since our launch in 2014, we have provided free 3-hour sailing excursions for over 890 guests.
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 Welcome Donations
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!
Cancer doesn’t win today!
Watch Tim & Candy’s Story

But his battle with Stage 2 Rectal Cancer was slowly diminishing that smile and weighing heavily on his whole family until Tim, and his partner Candy, were nominated for a sail with Healing Winds. Hear how their time together on the water transformed their journey…putting wind back in their sails.
