I was invited by ZEILEN magazine to the Hiswa Te Water boat show in Amsterdam. Challenging our dutch norther friends to write their name on my sail, for MS research.
On Sunday July the 3rd we had our first out of five sailing days with people who have Multiple Sclerorisis. A great experience, looking forward for more!
My aim is to motivate MS patients to sport and move and getting in touch with the sport of sailing. This is made possible by the sailing team ZachteKracht (www.zachtekracht.be) who gave their time and boat to take these people out on the water.
A lot of smiling faces (red faces the next day, as the sun was giving full power) and nice to hear most participants are eager for more...! There are still a few places left for the days to come, subscription is possible via http://www.ms-vlaanderen.be/activiteiten/p/detail/zeildagen/1
