Oceans Of Hope

BEWL WATER POSTER 1

Oceans of Hope Challenge is a voluntary organisation offering sailing activity holidays to people living with MS.So far we have held events in Turkey, Croatia, Scotland and Spain with over 150 people having participated sailing in a flotilla of yachts. We have further challenges organised in Croatia and Scotland in 2018 which are now fully subscribed. Mutual support members have previously and continue to participate in these challenges. We have decided to add a new event in the UK this year which is more accessible for people. We have planned a residential weekend of sailing, barbecues and picnics for 40 people at the beautiful Bewl Water in Kent. Food and fully accessible en-suite accommodation is provided and there will be a variety of vessels to meet everybody’s needs on the water. This venue has been chosen for its excellent accessibility for people with limited mobility. AS a RYA Sailability Centre, this facility provides adapted boats and hoists for easier access to the water.
