We connect veterans with accessible, engaging sailing experiences across Australia. 


At Invictus Australia, we work together on programs, initiatives and offers to encourage veterans and their families from around Australia to become involved – and stay involved – with some of the best sporting communities that Australia has to offer.

“When you have a participant turn up, it’s amazing the change from the beginning of the day to the end of the day,” says Tom. “Everyone’s a bit distant, as far away from one another as possible, then they come on board and go sailing together as a team and then afterwards we all sit down together for lunch. That wouldn’t have been possible before. Miraculously, after a couple of hours on the water, everyone is sitting around having lunch talking to each other.”
