Sail To Prevail is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded in 1982 that has helped over 10,000 individuals with disabilities. Originally called Shake-A-Leg Newport, we rebranded the name to Sail To Prevail in 2010, but the mission remains unchanged. Each summer, over 1,500 disabled people learn the skills of sailing in our fleet of specially adapted sailboats. Sail To Prevail programs are operated during the summer months at Fort Adams State Park in scenic Newport, Rhode Island. Participants are encouraged to come from around the country. First time and experienced sailors are welcome at Sail To Prevail. Our program is available to all disabilities and has programs designed to meet specific needs. ‘Confidence is Cool’ Camp is a recreational day camp offered to physically disabled children, ages 7-17, and is designed to fill a void in summer programming available for children with physical disabilities. The participants have different levels of ability and come from all over New England with one goal in mind – to have fun!
