The Sailing Angels Foundation offers free sailing excursions on a daily basis for education, respite and recreational therapy. Originally serving individuals with cognitive challenges, physical challenges and life threatening illnesses, we have since expanded our reach to include those suffering from severe traumatic experiences and socially challenged children. These guests include “at risk” children, military veterans, first responders, families of the incarcerated, bereaved families and those recovering from domestic violence. Families and caretakers are always welcome on these trips. Our mission is to bring peace, healing and happiness to the individual and their families. The program is often transformational to the individuals and their families. We create priceless memories, one sail at a time!

The Sailing Angels Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, based in the Greater Houston area.

The Sailing Angels Board of Directors is aware of the Coronavirus situation and its impact on the community. Please be assured that nothing is more important than the health and safety of our volunteers and patrons. For the safety of everyone involved, we have made the decision to temporarily halt operations. We will continually monitor conditions to identify changes that are required for future outings. Once operations for Sailing Angels have resumed, we will post the information on social media and our website. You are invited to register today and once operations resume, we will be in touch.

Use the general registration page to sign up for an upcoming adventure.

Use the contact page to address your questions, express interest about volunteering or donating, or to sign up for our newsletter.  To look at our recent newsletter please click here.

Congratulations to Debbie Hughes, Chairman of the Board, for being awarded the 2019 Woman of Achievement by FamilyTime Crisis and Counseling Center. For more information please click here.

Partner Spotlight! 🔦True North Marine 

True North Marine has been encouraging boat owners to get out on the water and enjoy the boating lifestyle since it is such a great activity that can be done safely while social distancing! True North Marine’s Shipyard & Service Department have remained opened to support their customer’s boating needs through these times. Many of the True North team members have been spending their free time on Clear Lake and Galveston Bay whether that’s leisurely cruising or racing!

True North Marine was founded in 2003 by Patrick McAndrew after living aboard his own vessel. While continually striving to stay on top of new developments and advancements in products, technology & services in the marine industry, he draws on his 20+ years of experience to provide technical consulting, teaching and training to their technicians and customers alike!

Sailing Angels would like to thank True North Marine for hosting our post-regatta party coming up this Saturday! #kemahtxImage attachmentImage attachment
