A Global Voyage

posted: 7/15/2014

The Danish yacht, Oceans of Hope, has set sail from Copenhagen to Kiel, Germany,  followed by Amsterdam, Netherlands, Portsmouth, UK, La Rochelle, France, Lisbon, Portugal  and across the Atlantic Ocean to Boston, Mass., where the crew is due to arrive in September.

It is the first circumnavigation of the world by a yacht crewed by people with multiple sclerosis (MS). Oceans of Hope is the flagship of a campaign by the same name, organized by the Sailing Sclerosis Foundation. The goal of the 17-month project is to change perceptions of MS by showing what is possible when people with a chronic disease are empowered to conquer their individual challenges.
