On the helpful and intelligent advice of seasoned sailors, Sail4syria is taking a pause for winter for the next few months. This is due to the winter setting in and the difficulty of sailing on the Mediterranean Sea during this period.
‘Rumi’ is now in safe storage next to the River Rhone, a few days from the Mediterranean Sea.
We will continue to update our plans and movements for Sail4Syria via this website. In the meanwhile be sure to follow the excellent work of Syrian Eyes and other similar groups who are dedicating their energy and time to helping some of the 11 million displaced Syrians who are surviving in extremely harsh, challenging and life threatening conditions right now!
Next Monday in London, Syria Peace & Justice will be holding a Syria Solidarity Evening to raise funds for Syrian Eyes. For more info, please scroll down the page.
A big ‘Thank you’ to all those people who have supported Sail4Syria thus far. We could not have reached this point without considerable support and co-operation from a long list of people, associations and groups.
Maria and Simon are now returning to London for winter.
