“To go to sea is to escape in the best sense, to flee trivial routine for something more lasting. The sea calls in a different voice to each of us, with a message we all understand; there’s something beyond what we know, and we can reach it.”
– Before the Wind: True Stories About Sailing, by David Gowdey
As a 501c(3) non-profit organization, our goal at Compass Point Veteran Outreach is to provide an opportunity to veterans who are longing for an adventure.
Over 100 years ago, physicians used nature to heal; today, we heal through sailing. Compass Point strives to offer the best in an individual and family oriented holistic plan for better living. We use sailing as a healing mechanism in the quest for a semblance of normalcy for returning veterans and their families.
The staff of Compass Point consists of veterans from multiple wars, who have challenged themselves in the art of sailing and use it to improve their minds and lives.
We are located in Port Sanilac, Michigan, on the blue waters of Lake Huron. Our office is located far from the noise and stress of urban locations, offering a peaceful and quiet setting. Sailing days away to Lakes Superior and Michigan, to the beautiful Georgian Bay and North Channel.
Step aboard and start a journey to a better life for you and your family.
