The Sailing School is a delicate and complicated social project, the pride of a philosophy that has taken concrete shape and aims to make possible a healthy sports such as sailing for all children in quarters of Naples and the Province in difficult social conditions. It is the heartfelt wish of its founder Vincenzo Onorato to restore dignity and create freedom of choice for the less fortunate because his inspiration stems from a precise conviction summed up in a simple and by now well-known statement: “I believe that the future of the children of Naples can come from the sea”. To demonstrate the truth of this, there was no better way than creating a place exclusively for kids in areas of the Province of Naples that are at risk, a second home, welcoming and clean, with well-qualified and caring staff who look after them.
A safe place where, after school, it is possible to nourish, educate and let the kids go sailing with precise objectives. The main aim of the Sailing School has been right from the beginning to offer young people in difficult areas a chance of redemption through the sport of sailing and its most important values: loyalty, strength and courage. It is also to be hoped that the activities carried out at the Sailing School can also serve in the future to start the kids on a professional career related to the sea or in other areas.
