The Mission of Impossible Dream
To use the Impossible Dream, a universally designed ocean going catamaran, to bring disabled and nondisabled people together in productive, collaborative endeavors. With its unique accessible design, the Impossible Dream is an equalizer, creating a community that works together to sail our boat, exchange ideas and experience the empowering sensation of being in a beautiful, barrier free environment.
