About the project

“Sails of spirits” is a social project, which has been implemented since 2011. First of all, this expedition is an inclusive project, where the interaction of a invalid – healthy occurs in a harmonious and natural way. In the travel there is a joint training of seamanship, preparation and conduct of sea expeditions, regattas and humanitarian activities.

The basis of the project is the idea about a round-the-world travel on a sailing-motor vessel with an inclusive crew on board. Inclusion is the basic principle of the “Sails of spirits” – each sail and other activities within the project is carried out by a team consisting of people with disabilities and people without disabilities.
