SAIL MED, through the promotion and use of sail transport, aims to enhance local economic developments, food security, health, environmental conservation and education and to sail toward a sustainable Blue Economy that is free from a dependency on the world’s rapidly depleting and heavily polluting fossil fuels.
Achieving Our Mission
SAIL MED will launch Aegean Cargo Sailing in June 2017 and pilot other sail transport projects in the Mediterranean region.
SAIL MED will help to raise awareness of the innovations, need and usefulness of sail technology in maritime cargo transport.
SAIL MED is seeking partners to submit an EU-based funding grant to link partners across Europe in sail transport related endeavors.
