Navigating The Sea Of Life
Our mission is to provide potentially life-changing opportunities to people from various backgrounds, through the maritime industry. By using our own vessels, the sea, traditional sailing and maritime educational experiences, as a medium to integrate people and underprivileged youths, into a society they predominantly feel excluded from.
SY Windsong will be the flagship for WOW in the UK and will sail around periodically in order to facilitate visiting candidates and to raise awareness for Wellness Over Waves during maritime festivals all over the UK, Ireland and Northern Europe. It is also in the UK where she will receive further works in order to bring her to UK category standard for the particular type of vessel and work she will do.
