aboard the iconic Nantucket Lightship in Nantucket. The event, which also honored alliances with Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center and their affiliate Nantucket Cottage Hospital, was attended by many yachtsmen competing in the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge as well as several key administrators from Massachusetts General Hospital and Nantucket Cottage Hospital. Most importantly, a few patients who have benefited from Sa i li n g H e al s initial sails were on board to enjoy the beautiful summer evening and spend a relaxing night in Nantucket, courtesy of Officine Panerai. Making the most of their inaugural season, in addition to several more late-summer/early-fall sails in New England, Saili ng Heals has a sail planned for early October on the 68’ vintage yacht Black Watch (built in 1938). Black Watch, which came in first overall in the Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta last August, will host a few special patients and their guests from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center as they enjoy the healing waters and spectacular views of New York City. “We never forget the importance of these experiences to our patients’ guests,” Boisvert goes on to say, “Often people forget that it’s not just the patients who go through the treatments and trauma, it’s usually the families and caregivers too. We want to celebrate their contributions and give the patients an opportunity to express their gratitude in a unique and meaningful way that will lead to great memories for all.” For more information on Sailing Heals, to learn how you can get involved, or to make a donation, please visit www.sailingheals.com
