ABOUT THE PROJECT

Mifrasim (which means ‘sails’ in Hebrew) is a non-profit venture, operating under “Topaz- Leading Social Innovations.”  Mifrasim brings sail training voyages on a unique large-scale sailboat, to Israel. By matching our skilled sailing crew and facilitators to each group’s needs, we create a unique and powerful platform that provides life changing voyages for:

  • Youth at Risk

  • People dealing with PTSD

  • People dealing with loss (bereavement)

  • People on the spectrum

  • Polarized populations

  • Professional Crews

ABOUT THE BOAT

After circling the world twice and sailing around Antarctica for 10 years, she sailed from Holland to Israel at the end of 2018 to start her new role as The Social Boat. 

 

We chose the ‘Challenge 67’ sailboat as the flagship vessel for Mifrasim for several reasons: The Challenge 67 was built to be a strong and seaworthy vessel, designed for fast and safe sailing around the world. The vessel is practical for our needs and offers basic living conditions below deck, while providing a challenging and thrilling sailing experience under full sail. 

 

The vessel is unique in that without the teamwork and collaboration of 20 sailors working together as a team, the vessel will not sail.   But when she does sail, the experience is unforgettable! Similar large-scale vessels are used in organizations around the world to work with special populations to achieve their social goals.
