What sailing rebels do

Segelrebellen is a nonprofit organization that enables young cancer patients to participate in offshore sailing trips.


Sailboats have nothing in mind with glorifying pirate life; also nothing with maritime freaks who renounce the country life. Rather, they are looking for distance from the dreariness of pondering.

We have had enough of a forced everyday life that many have not been able to choose for far too long. We want to get away from the mists of disinfectants, no longer want to see any pill shells on the bedside table, let alone worried faces, which save us as much as possible from our own helplessness and envelop us with cotton wool. Instead, we want something different: out at sea, the wide view, spray in the face, the security of a bunk. We would rather feel the rolling of the waves in the body, than hear the clack of rollaway beds on tile joints and the beeping of monitoring equipment. And so we go out – far from the coast and from hospitals – although we should and should „spare“ my other The unobstructed view, detached from the worries on land, frees our gaze again and behind the proverbial horizon of everyday life, where we can find solutions and perspectives for the new future.
