Sailing with a ‘greater’ purpose

“Sea Mercy’s remote island programs are not designed as a ‘one size fits all’ process but to meet the unique and personal desires and capabilities of each vessel/owner. Whether it is restoring sight by providing free reading glasses, the first to deliver emergency aid following a natural disaster or sailing international volunteer medical and dental teams to the ‘at risk’ remote islands, we have a program to fit your desires.”
Richard Hackett, President & Founder of Sea Mercy

Sailing with a ‘greater’ purpose

There is always a purpose behind blue water sailing, whether it is charting an intricate route from the Caribbean to the South Pacific or simply wanting to get away from the rat race. However, it is the journey and stops along the way that are far more important than just reaching your destination. Since 2012, Sea Mercy’s mission has been to encourage and support blue water sailors who wish to “sail with a greater purpose” and help make a difference in the lives of those they meet along the way.

Below is a wonderful video on the incredible opportunities of volunteering with Sea Mercy.
