Introducing Oceans of Hope: a sailboat with a crew of people with multiple sclerosis
Robert Munns will be talking tonight about the work of the Sailing Sclerosis Foundation and their boat Oceans of Hope.
The Sailing Sclerosis Foundation is a Danish non-profit association with the purpose of activating and creating communities of empowerment for people living with Multiple Sclerosis through sailing and activities related to sailing.
Oceans of Hope, is a Challenge 67 built in 1996 in Devonport, England, to take part in the BT Challenge races. Since being bought by the Sailing Sclerosis Foundation Oceans of Hope has completed a circumnavigation which set out from Copenhagen in June 2014 and returned in November 2015. It was the first circumnavigation in a sailboat with a crew of people with Multiple Sclerosis. Their next project is an expedition to explore the Arctic Sea.
