Argus House Sailing Trip

Argus House is a group home for teenage boys in Arlington, VA. Although these guys have had challenges, they are so much fun to sail with! It was amazing watching them take charge of the sailboat and sail it around the Chesapeake Bay.

As they learned to tack upwind, we discussed the fact that even though the wind and waves were against them, they were able to use their new found sailing skills to get to

their destination. Just like life, you don’t need to just get pushed around by the wind, waves and storms that will try to set you back. There is hope, and you can overcome setbacks to reach your goals.

We agreed that even though others might just drift down wind with the crowd, this did not have to be the case with them. I hope these young men left our excursion as inspired as I did!
