Addiction and poor mental health are one of Ireland’s great social challenges

Sailing into Wellness provides an opportunity for vulnerable groups to experience a completely new environment, on the open sea. For those with mental health issues, recovering from addiction or from disadvantaged backgrounds sailing is proven to be a powerful tool in their development. Working together as a team, individuals are supported to overcome personal challenges in an environment that is both exhilarating and therapeutic.

"It’s in a safe place, being brought to the edge - anything could happen"

Beneficiary & Facilitator
