Summer Tour

2017 Summer Tour

This year marks the third goodwill tour up the eastern seaboard for Impossible Dream. Our mixed ability crew will navigate over 6,000 miles from Miami to Quebec City, stop in over 25 ports-of-call, and sail with hundreds of people who are currently undergoing physical rehabilitation at the facilities of our partner organizations.

The first leg of the major voyage includes Baltimore, New York, and Boston; where the boat will join Tall Ships of America and Sail Training International for the Rendez-Vous journey to Canada. Impossible Dream will be the most accessible boat among the most historic sailing vessels in the world. After celebrating Canada’s 150 anniversary in Quebec City, the Canadian leg will conclude with the sail to Halifax, where Impossible Dream will part ways and continue South hosting more receptions, sails, and cultural events in 20 American cities.

Become a part of our initiatives, join us for a sail, and follow our journey as we unite local communities in an effort to strive for what others believe is unattainable!

Impossible Dream

Initiatives:

| Receptions & Tours |
Check out the boat and become a part of our network. Exchange ideas, learn about universal design, and expand your perception with other engaged, active individuals.

| Barrier Free Sailing |
Whether for a day sail or an overnight passage we reach out to and are approached by people from local community boating centers, veterans’ associations, children’s hospitals, access communities, disability organizations, and partner non-profits that pursue a better quality of life for people with disabilities and their families.

| Ocean Conservation |
Engage with scientists, research vessels, and people who are pursuing knowledge and data acquisition for the betterment of our oceans.

| Art-Of-Sail |
Collaborative project with Rise Up Gallery, Shake-A-Leg, and artist, Magda Love. We are auctioning a double sided, painted sail by prominent mural artist Magda Love. The use of an art piece to actually propel the boat through its journey is a bold statement for the power of nature, art, and joining communities under one singular, recognizable initiative; to use art and design as a catalyst for ocean conservation awareness while sailing.

| Music on the Water |
Selected musicians from each port of call are invited for a sail and asked to perform on the water. The piece is recorded and broadcasted on appropriate media platforms to generate attention and exposure.

| Sea Stories |
A series of segments with journalists who interview prominent local leaders and philanthropists on board to discuss the importance of a healthy ocean and the beneficial effects that water and boating have had on our community.
