The social project “Sails of the Spirit” has been implemented since 2011. This project is an inclusive expedition where people with and without disabilities interact. Inclusion is the basic principle of the “Sails of the Spirit” – each sailing and other activities within the project are carried out by a team that includes people with special abilities and needs. During the expedition, we learn to interact with each other, to use the strengths of each in the process of joint training in maritime business or the implementation of social and cultural and sporting events in the places where you are traveling.
Inclusion is the basic principle of the “Sails of the Spirit” – each sailing and other activities within the project are carried out by a team consisting of people with disabilities and people without disabilities.

The goal of the project “Sails of the Spirit” is the development of inclusive yachting as an open model for the manifestation of special talents and human abilities.
In 2019, we concentrate on creating a methodology for the formation of competencies for inclusive interaction with the help of yachting.
Over 15 stages, representatives of different countries and continents, ages, professions, including people with disabilities, many of whom became regular participants took part in the project.
In the 2018 stage, the project’s audience was more than 2,400 people, of which more than 340 were people with disabilities.
Inclusive crews covered more than 10,000 nautical miles and carried out activities in 31 countries.
In 2019, the expedition across the Mediterranean Sea will take place on a catamaran Fountaine Pajot Helia 44 M “Lady Sophie”.
