Skeleton Crew Adventures, a non-profit organization supporting veterans through sailing as adventure therapy, will participate in the upcoming Ocean Globe Race to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1973 Whitbread Round the World Race. The race will cover around 27,000 nautical miles and last around seven months, testing the skills and courage of participants. The Skeleton Crew will be made up of veterans from all branches of the military, selected for their exceptional sailing skills and dedication to the organization’s mission. Skeleton Crew has a long history of assisting veterans in their transition to civilian life, and their participation in the Ocean Globe Race is another way to help veterans overcome obstacles and achieve their goals.
Taylor Grieger, Founder of Skeleton Crew, said that the race is an opportunity to showcase the skills of veterans and their ability to achieve great things in all walks of life. Skeleton Crew has worked tirelessly to prepare for the race and feels honored to be the only American team competing in the challenge, representing the veteran community on the global stage. The Ocean Globe Race is set to start in September 2023 and will be closely followed by sailing enthusiasts and media around the world. Despite the grueling challenge facing them, Skeleton Crew is excited to participate and share their journey with supporters and well-wishers.
