MS crew Oceans of Hope, special guests at EMSP’s 2016 Annual Conference

Since 2014, when Oceans of Hope’s daring journey started, the crew have become close partners of EMSP: they were present at our 2015 Annual Conference and EMSP was represented at their 2015 ECTRIMS event.

During our May 2016 Conference, the Oceans of Hope boat will dock in the Oslo Harbour, at the Royal Norwegian Yacht Club. Boat tours on the Oslo Fjord will be available for participants and other people living with MS. They will be able to feel the awe of the circumnavigation and hear about this experience directly from founder and skipper Mikkel Anthonisen, and his crew.
