Make It Happen!

Sailowtech’s actions would not be possible without our partners, who are an integral part of the association’s mission and are playing an active role in the recognition of global ocean issues by joining forces with us.

Sailowtech is currently seeking financial and material partnerships.

Does our project make sense to you, and do you think your company also wants to make the Ocean’s voice heard?

Principal Partners

We’re also lucky to be working with their Department for the Promotion of Science for all of our pedagogical workshops on the themes of the Ocean and its preservation.

 Ocean Trotter

To make accessible what is not accessible, to show what is hidden, to explain what is incomprehensible. This is the aim of the Ocean Trotter association. 

Ocean Trotter is a French association that supports initiatives that combine science and awareness-raising to better preserve our most beautiful treasure: the Ocean. 

Ocean Trotter is lending us its sailing boat, Carlina, for our first expedition: the Atlantea expedition.

We collaborate with Pacifique on its sailing boat Mauritius for the Arvor expedition.
