Team Paradise is a truly unique sailing organization that gives the disabled community an opportunity to sail at all levels of expertise. No disability is severe enough to prevent sailing with us. Wheelchair bound or not, our boats are customized and adapted to match the abilities of the crew. Team Paradise will get you out sailing!
U.S. Olympic gold medal sailor, Magnus Liljedahl, founded team Paradise in 2005. He shares what he learns from others and is quick to point out the many benefits that sailing has to offer: “Sailing is oftentimes a soothing and relaxing experience, providing solitude and contemplation while improving concentration, core strength and mental wellness. Sailing teaches teamwork and communication, and is a shared accomplishment that builds self-confidence. Time spent with Team Paradise allows you to unplug and reconnects you with nature and with yourself.”
Team Paradise has a program for everyone, whether you want to compete in racing, take sailing lessons, or simply just go for a recreational sail. No sailing skills are required to become involved. Team Paradise offers FREE non-competitive Community Sailing opportunities for Wounded Warriors, people with physical disabilities and for our underserved youth. Class fees and tuitions are pre-paid through grants, donations and proceeds from our Sailing School and membership.
