Yachts with Heart origins

The source of the Yachts with Heart events that Eco-Mer has been organizing since 2010, takes its inspiration from the magnificent text of the Seafarers' Chaplain of the Basque Country Solidarity at Sea against Winds and Tides - by Mikel Epalza. This founding text of Yachts with Heart, speaks of the natural cohesion of the world of the sea because all sailors know that it is only together that one can save oneself. "The sailors remind to all the inhabitants of the planet that we are all on board the same ship: ‘The Earth’.”
