The vision of the Accessible Oceans (AO) Foundation is to make our oceans accessible to all disabled people for therapy, adventure and vocation.

This inspirational goal will be achieved through an exciting mission: 

THE ACCESSIBLE OCEANS GLOBAL CHALLENGE.

THE BIGGER PICTURE


adventure

The prototype yacht design will be incorporated into universal production lines to produce a fleet of yachts accessible to disabled sailors of all experience levels.

Geoff’s sailing crew will be made up of sailing partners with mixed physical ability for each leg representing hub region, to foster the sport and deliver the vision for the long term

vocation

Geoff will follow a strategically planned sailing route with scheduled stops at targeted hubs. In the long term, these hubs will become international centres delivering the AO vision around the world.

Creating Opportunities for Disabled Sailors

#REINSTATE SAILING


The AO Global Challenge will champion the #ReinstateSailing campaign, to reinstate sailing into the 2024 Paralympics. 

Through the challenge and its support for the campaign, Geoff and the crew will offer inspiration and encouragement to disabled athletes in every sport.
