Report from Bosun Bertram:
The sailors of Oceans of Hope are currently enjoying the pulsating urban life of Manhattan and New York City. Landmarks are visited as well as historical locations such as the New York Yacht Club for our reception last night followed by a visit to the New York Stock Exchange this afternoon. Altogether we feel very privileged to be welcomed so warmly by the city and the people of New York to this incredible location… that apparently never sleeps. We are having an amazing time here while we get to spread the message of our project. Tomorrow we will be sailing with local New Yorkers living with MS to give them an opportunity to see how it feels steering the Oceans of Hope yacht and taking matters into their own hands!
