SAIL MED aims to advance the use of wind energy (sails) in cargo transport and passenger travel around the world, by linking together experts, industry stakeholders, researchers and all other interested parties who can effect change and advance our mission.
SAIL MED, through the promotion and use of sail transport, also aims to enhance economic development, 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.
