Nonprofit providing sailing trips for 'joy and hope'

May 11, 2022 1:32 pm

Cloey Callahan reports in the Times Union about the nonprofit organization SailHope, which sponsors sailing trips on the Hudson River for those in need. "You forget about other issues when you’re sailing,” said Stefany Coulter of Catskill, who co-founded non-profit to “reach those who are facing personal, financial or emotional discouragement, stress and struggles, and bring them new joy and hope.” Each trip can host up to six people on the group's 28-foot sailboat, which boards in Catskill where the boat is berthed, or at the town dock in Athens or Hudson. So far the group has worked with Columbia/Greene Mental Health Association and wants to partner with the Girl Scouts’ mariners’ program. “I want to share it with as many people as possible and not everyone can afford to rent a boat or go sailing,” said Coulter. “I didn’t want people to feel like they couldn’t experience that.” Read more about this story in the Times Union.
