What is a Port Ambassador?

During our annual Summer Tour, we enlist the help of local volunteers in each port to help coordinate trips, fundraise, and secure docking along the East Coast. Port ambassadors share the compassion, devotion, and shared vision for the Impossible Dream and are a crucial piece to making our Summer Tour a huge success.

We would not be able to offer the opportunity to sail to so many people with disabilities in so many locations.

Qualifications:

  • Be present at time of visit

  • Well connected community member

Benefits:

  • Sail on board the Impossible Dream while in port

  • T-shirt, hat, and other Impossible Dream gear

Donating to the Impossible Dream

From our brave veterans to the newly injured, from kids with cognitive and physical disabilities to seniors whose mobility has been compromised, from wheelchair-using sailors who can no longer crew a standard boat to their loving carers and families, we want everyone to experience the freedom and delight of a few hours out on the ocean.
