Who we are…

We are a sailing vessel based in Malta that sails the Mediterranean Sea. Our vision is to raise uptraindisciple, and release the next ‘wave’ of missionaries. As such, we use sail training and biblical studies to challenge young men and women’s character, develop strong leaders, and share God’s love with all that we meet.  Our goal is to inspire young leaders to set world changing examples and call all of those around them to a higher standard of living wholly for God.

Train: to provide them with the skills needed to achieve their desires and dreams. Disciple: to provide support, encouragement, and transformation, as well as learning to disciple others into developing a Biblical world view. Release: to send out equipped, trained, and supported individuals into their life callings.
