Challenged Sailors San Diego is an entirely volunteer supported program providing sailing opportunities for kids, adults, and veterans with disabilities.

We need volunteers to help out in a variety of capacities, including:

- Companion sailors

- Boat maintenance and dock support (no experience required)

- Back office support

- Fund raising and public relations

We have a fleet of eight Martin 16 sailboats specifically designed for adaptive sailing. Our primary sailing days (when we need companion sailors and dock support) are Fridays and Saturdays from 12-3pm, but we sometimes schedule another day on request if sufficient volunteers are available.

Send an email to if you have any questions or would like to volunteer in any capacity.
