At the end of September, the 17th stage of the inclusive expedition “Sails of the Spirit” will start, which will be held in the Mediterranean Sea. The motto of this stage of the “Sails of the spirit 2021” is: “Sport. Ecology. Inclusive culture”. The main idea of the project, as before, is to create an inclusive field for the realization of the talents and abilities of each of society members, regardless of physical abilities.

For the first time, the expedition will be held in the format of an offshore sailing race – a race on the open sea on two cruiser yachts. Two yachts with inclusive crews will start on the Mediterranean Sea, and during sea crossings, the teams will compete both in the skills of controlling the sails and the wind, and also in the ability to manage inclusive interaction. The race includes 3 stages: 1) Göcek – Antalya 2) Antalya – Taşucu  3) Taşucu – Göcek.

Representatives from Turkey, Russia, Latvia, and Sweden will take part in the expedition. The crew of each yacht is 10 people: professional yachtsmen, volunteers with disabilities and volunteers without disabilities. The starting and ending point of the route will be the city of Göcek (Turkey).

In 2021, sports, environmental and educational inclusive events are planned in the cities along the route

– offshore sailing race of 2 inclusive crews;

– sailing regattas with the participation of local residents;

– gardening campaings (planting trees and shrubs)

– eco-actions (cleaning of territories from household garbage);

– participation of 2 inclusive crews in the International Days of Inclusion in Silifke.
