What a summer! This year our voyages took us down the coastline from Sligo to Galway (where we had a great time at Ireland's maritime festival, SeaFest) and then onwards to Limerick and around the West Cork coastline.
We worked with two Irish vessels: our good friends at the Spirit of Oysterhaven and new friends on the Brian Boru. We welcomed young people on board from a whole host of countries including Syria, Bolivia, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Botswana, Albania, Poland, the USA and of course Ireland! We were delighted to work with local youth groups and our partner organisations new and old, including Forogie - the CRIB project Sligo, the Irish Refugee Council, Welcome to Roscommon and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Huge thanks go to our volunteers, supporters and our kind sponsors, without whom the project could not have taken place: Callan Tansey, Mason Hayes & Curran and SeaFest.
