EOS 1528 Sailing Expeditions for the Blind

Wednesdays and Sundays at 5:00 p.m. on Reachout Radio

The goal of the Imago Maris Foundation is to promote the idea of sea sailing for blind people from different European countries, as well as exchange experience and integrate blind sailors across Europe.


If you're in or visiting Europe and you've always wanted to go sea sailing, then this is the program for you.  Eyes on Success hosts Pete and Nancy Torpey talk about this amazing program that makes sailing accessible to all.

Imago Maris Foundation hosts sailing expeditions each year, with half the participants being visually impaired and the other half sighted.  Each participant does everything from working the ropes to kitchen duty.  Hosts Nancy and Peter Torpey speak with Julia Krawczuk, a volunteer with Imago Maris and Robert Zarzecki, a blind sailor.  Both participated in a 2014 voyage.
