North Atlantic Challenge

This year’s sailing season will focus on the North Atlantic Challenge, with voyages to destinations such as Boston, Bermuda, and New York City. As Phil and his crew navigate the open waters, they do so with a purpose greater than themselves – to shine a light on epilepsy, a condition affecting millions worldwide. Each wave conquered and every nautical mile crossed serves as a testament to the resilience of those living with epilepsy and their unwavering spirit in facing life’s challenges.

Fearless: Newport, RI

With each leg of the journey, the North Atlantic Challenge not only raises awareness but also fosters a sense of unity and purpose among all those touched by epilepsy. When in port, Phil will engage with local communities, sharing stories of courage, dispelling myths, and advocating for greater awareness and resources for epilepsy research and support.

Follow along during the Challenge and help us spread messages of hope and resilience across the vast expanse of the North Atlantic.

Share our posts on social media. Talk with your friends and family about epilepsy and our mission. Invite Sail For Epilepsy to teach a group you belong to about epilepsy and seizure first aid. And if you have epilepsy, consider sharing your story. Together we can help raise awareness and reduce stigma.
