About the Foundation

The 2nd Wind Foundation, a Rhode Island non-profit corporation, was created to bring the New England coastal environment, its harbors, its shoreline, its wildlife, its fish and its birds, and its rich coastal resources to the lives of the mobility impaired public impacted by neurological disorders, young or elderly of all genders, races and ethnicities.

If you are interested in arranging a 1/2 day coastal excursion onboard one of our yachts for a mobility impaired person, send us an email detailing the applicant, their age and  mobility impairment and a doctor’s note permitting this activity

News Flash

The 2nd Wind Foundation and  the Shake-A-Leg Foundation ( Miami)  originally from Jamestown RI, are considering a joint venture to offer both sail training and power boat excursions for disabled and mobility impaired youth from a new Ri base of operations. The two Foundations are exploring the idea of pairing up to create an exciting new recreational and learning facility for disabled and mobility impaired youth in Rhode Island.
