Coming Soon!

Healing Winds Vermont will be at this year’s Festival by the Sea!

Healing Winds Vermont is excited to announce that we will have a booth at the 2017 Festival by the Sea on Sunday, August 6th 2017. An annual event coordinated with the Manchester Division of the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, this all-day extravaganza taps into the long-line of local talent with musical and artistic performers alike.

Board members and volunteers from Healing Winds will be on hand to talk about our mission, which is to create lasting memories for individuals with cancer, and their loved ones, through the therapeutic experience of sailing.

The event, which lasts from 10:00am to 6:00pm, is free and there will be ample parking and a complimentary shuttle to and from satellite parking areas. Mark your calendar and pack your blanket for a day of great music, inspired artistry and delicious, locally grown foods. Please come stop by our booth to learn more about our mission, and how you may be able to help!

We love the enthusiasm of our sailor friends and volunteers, and encourage you to sign up as volunteer captain or crew! At this time our model is to use our own dedicated vessel for our guest sails. Having a signature vessel serves our interests and those of our guests in a number of ways. It allows us to equip the vessel in a way that maximizes both the comfort and the safety of our guests. Having our own boat also allows us to control all aspects of the guests’ experience and assure the best possible outcomes.

Healing Winds primarily serves those who are currently in treatment, living with cancer, or who are terminally ill. However, we encourage you to fill out a nomination form for yourself or a loved one.
