The 20-metre yacht, Oceans of Hope is undertaking the first circumnavigation with a working crew including people with multiple sclerosis. The 17-month voyage aims to change perceptions of MS by showing what people with a chronic disease can achieve when they are given the opportunity to conquer their own personal challenges and go beyond their perceived limitations. The project aims to create links between the MS and sailing communities by organising taster sails in the major ports of call. Places are available on board for people with MS from all over the world. More information and application forms are available at http://www.sailingsclerosis.com.
