We are a group of passionate sailors. We have all spent many days on memorable trips in the waters of the Mediterranean. However, right now there is a humanitarian catastrophe taking place. Sadly, thousands of people have drowned in recent years-and more are dying on a daily basis.
Standing by and letting people drown is not an option!
We feel obliged to adhere to the the rules of maritime salvage. However, at the same time we feel powerless in the face of the current events. We can neither solve the complex problems of the refugee crisis nor all go sail the Mediterranean rescuing people in distress. What can we do?
For this reason we founded the nonprofit organization „Solidarität auf See“ (Solidarity at Sea) at the beginning of 2016. Our objective is to have all participants involved in maritime activities, namely sailors, yacht charterers, agencies, marinas, boatshows or shipyards to provide practical and needed help for people in maritime distress. The existing private projects in sea rescue need assistance-be it monetary or idea creation.
As a first step we provide on our website several private initiatives dealing with maritime salvage of refugees. We hope you find these projects valuable and kindly request your donations. Further we would also like to ask all participants involved in maritime activities to link us to their respective websites. You will be named as supporters and as such are able to contribute to our cause in an easy and practical way.
For these and any further projects we of course need your support and strength in numbers is key: the more members the more gets accomplished. A heavy tailwind , as we maritimers say, in the form of a strong association with many members will make this organization a success. You are cordially invited to join as member of „Solidarität auf See“. New members, innovative ideas and energetic participation are welcome at any time. Please contact us!
In the name of „Solidarität auf See“
