Offshore Sailing School is hosting a regatta for the Wounded Veterans Adaptive Sailing Program on Aug. 18 at its North Cove location in Manhattan’s Battery Park City neighborhood.

North Cove Sailing School will provide its fleet of Colgate 26s and instructor coaches for the 20 participants who have progressed through Wounded Veterans’ sailing program. There will be morning and afternoon racing.

“We are honored to provide our Colgate 26 fleet and sailing coaches for the Wounded Veterans Retreat Program that assists our returning wounded veterans,” Offshore Sailing School founder Steve Colgate said in a statement.

Established by retired Command Sgt. Maj. Nelson Corbin, the Wounded Veterans Retreat Program (a 501c3 non-profit) is designed to enhance the lives of wounded veterans and their families.

Corbin emphasized that each sailing event involves team building, developing individual skills, social activities and building self-confidence.

A similar regatta will be held Oct. 5-6 at Offshore’s Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina location in Fort Myers Beach, Fla.
