Coolmine’s “Voyage of Recovery”/ October 2017

Dublin Port recently sponsored Coolmine’s “Voyage of Recovery” an initiative – a programme which provides opportunities for those with drug and alcohol problems to develop skills and build confidence through sailing. 

 

The Irish voyage is organised by the Cork-based Sailing into Wellness organisation, established by James Lyons, one of Ireland’s most experienced sail training professionals and Colin Healy from Mallow who overcame addiction and mental health problems through sailing. Healy said that sailing can open doors to a life without drink and drugs. Sailing into Wellness helps reduce the risk of relapse, deepen engagement with treatment and encourage participants to think about living.
