The Saltwater Veterans Sailing Project, is a registered Health Promotion Charity under the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), and is unwavering in its mission to empower veterans and their families. We create meaningful impact as a conduit for social connection and sustained engagement between veterans and local sailing opportunities. All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

Saltwater Veteran Sailing Project is volunteer supported and community-facing. It serves as our esprit de corps toward achieving the common vision - supporting others who, like us (at one time or another) have needed that little help with social re-engagement via the wind-powered, kinetic motion that is sailing.

The purpose of the SVSP is to foster a supportive and inclusive community at monthly sailing activities around the nation by supporting the health & wellness of current and former service military personnel and their families.

Our project objectives are to foster:

  • Meaningful Engagement – veterans supporting both veterans and the community (such as Making Waves Foundation), and providing training that may lead to vocational/employment opportunities.
  • Psychosocial Reintegration – reducing social isolation that is often associated with mental health and physical injuries. We achieve this by facilitating an inclusive sailing program, alongside building a qualified and competent volunteer pool.

Achieving our own crew of volunteer & supporters within our existing programs will create significant independence, sustainability, and empowerment for our veteran community. It also provides meaningful engagement veterans through the opportunity to give back to their fellow, and new veterans.
