Utilizing both adaptive and conventional sailing vessels and other equipment, CORE is accessible to any veteran, regardless of the nature of their injury. Both peaceful and exhilarating in nature, CORE represents a unique medium which allows veterans to become fully adrenalized in a positive and sustainable setting while opening participants' eyes to the endless opportunity that exists in the world while equipping them with the tools that they will need to transition into the next stage of their lives and re-invent themselves, post-injury.
