At Sail Beyond Cancer, we know the experience of having cancer can be a lonely journey, not only for patients, but for friends and family, too. The stress, anxiety and uncertainty of cancer can be exhausting at times.


We believe in the importance of taking time to celebrate life’s beauty together, and we do so by providing a unique therapeutic recreational experience for the whole family.


We give our patients and caregivers a unique opportunity to share important time together while enjoying the beauty of sailing.


– Suzanne Johnson, Executive Director, Sail Beyond Cancer

We believe that sailing provides relief

Our vision is put into action through providing meaningful experiences of relief from the challenges of living with cancer for referred patients and their loved ones.


We focus on providing private sailing excursions that create opportunities to rebuild courage and make lasting memories while leaving a positive imprint on society.



Thank you to Captain Tom & crew for a perfect sunset cruise on Lake Champlain. It was a beautiful evening and so peaceful.


I am thankful to the volunteers and staff running this organization, for bringing us a peaceful sail and an evening to remember. This special experience will not be forgotten and this organization should be proud of the experiences you are offering to families’ lives who have been changed by cancer. Thank You!



This experience was such a blast! Full of laughter, joy, and singing! So much fun-- especially with my friends. I loved it!


Thank you, thank you, and thank you....
I will definitely share the wonderful experience I had  and spread the word
about the amazing work you all are doing.
Again, with much gratitude,
