Incoming: Oceans of Hope

It’s with great delight to inform you that the Oceans of Hope vessel is only a few weeks away from making its grand entrance in Sydney Harbour.

The 67ft yacht is currently completing an around-the-world voyage to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis.

The global voyage will showcase the possibilities of those with a chronic condition, and hopes to change the perception of people with MS and their abilities.

Our very own National Advocacy Program Coordinator, Andrew Potter, will be joining the sailing crew for two and a half months, starting in Auckland and disembarking in Darwin with stops in Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, and Cairns.

At each port, Andrew will be greeting others in the MS community, sharing stories and sailing with them for a few hours.

Hear more about Andrew’s story in the below video.

Oceans of Hope is the first ever circumnavigation crewed by people with multiple sclerosis. The team at MS Australia and I are thrilled to support  this global initiative and we cannot wait to see the yacht and follow Andrew’s journey.
