The WoW project

The ambitious scope of the WoW project is to spread across the United States and to Europe a message of peace and respect for individuals with disabilities through two fundamental documents: the ONU Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

A DREAM OF UNIVERSAL ACCESSIBILITY

Anyone can climb on board without having to leave her/his wheelchair. The dinette, the cabin and the bathroom are specifically designed for disability, allowing the wheelchair users to move around freely.
The crew members will also have the opportunity to pilot the catamaran on their own, feeling part of this project, all thanks to the accessible environments designed and created ad hoc.

It’s a two-fold mission, that allows any passenger to live the experience in complete autonomy, proving to everyone that sometimes, the most difficult barriers to overcome are the mental ones. The navigation serves as a compelling metaphor of self-improvement and personal growth.

COME ON BOARD WITH US!

The crew

On each route a new crew will climb on board, consisting of:
2 seamen (WOW staff)
8 disabled/abled crew members
2 professionals (journalists, musicians, artists or athletes...)

Different crew members will rotate boarding. Each group will share a practical and symbolic experience: the passing of the torch from one crew to another. A cyclical pattern and a continuous renewal that make this project unique and universal.

An experience for everyone!

WOW 2018 allows everyone to have a great day on board, and to live an unique experience, that makes its mark.
During the WoW open days, scheduled in different locations (along the Mediterranean coast) il will be possible to visit the catamaran and to join the crew for a daily trip.
Anyone who comes on board, will live a wonderful experience:

-10 a.m. Reception
-Briefing about Rules of Conduct
-Theoretical Lesson on Sailing basics
-Sea trip (lunch aboard)
-Piloting the catamaran, supported by the cabin staff (optional)

All this in complete autonomy, accessibility and safety.
