Veterans Encourage Marine Adventure Therapy For PTSD Awareness

Sailing is used as adventure therapy for persons with PTSD by veterans and first responders who are a part of the nonprofit The Skeleton Crew Adventures.

The team will compete in the Ocean Globe Race in 2023, our most significant ocean sailing competition. The event takes place over eight months. The once every four years race has been taking place for 50 years.

The crew’s base of operations is Kemah, Texas, and it offers 3–4 day offshore sailing expeditions over the Texas coast and sail training options. Only production sailboats will be used for the trip, and GPS devices will not be permitted; navigating will only be done using a se*tant and the stars.

Since we don’t have something similar here, we concentrate on preventing suicides rather than bandaging them up and responding after the fact.
