What Our Guests Say
"I need to commend CRAB’s fabulous staff and volunteers. They are a wonderful and caring group who have certainly changed many peoples’ lives for the better, including mine."
"The CRAB captains allow our students the hands on opportunity to sail a real sailboat. When you have no vision, you see with your hands. The captains allow the students to touch and feel everything as they explain exactly what everything is. They are so on cue with the students; they immediately get a sense of the level of the students and know how to modify the language to what the students can understand. I can't tell you how much this experience helps to build self-esteem in our students. They get such a sense of pride and accomplishment. The smiles are from ear to ear! I can't say enough about this program, the people that work it and the opportunities that it provides for our students! I fully support the CRAB program!
Thanks so much for the effort and dedication in offering the Recovering Warrior Sailing Regatta. While I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay, my soldier greatly appreciated her very first experience under sail.
"Being a volunteer with CRAB has been a life changing experience for me. I have been a volunteer for over three years. I have met so many wonderful individuals during the monthly Sail Free events and at the Wounded Warrior Regattas who have shared their amazing triumphant stories with me. I would not give up this volunteering experience for anything as I learn and gain new and wonderful perspectives from each encounter I have. My life has been touched by this organization and the individuals who come to participate in the joy of sailing."
"We don't get out like this very much."
