The year 2023 ends with important achievements for the sports-inclusive Sea4All activities by Tiliaventum, that take place continuously during the whole year for everyone in Lignano Sabbiadoro (North East Italy): sport successes in the regattas not specifically Paralympic (Punta Faro Cup, Autumn Championship, Ice Cup), sailings, courses, excursions, aggregative meetings, presence and sailing days at the Barcolana-Triest (the biggest Regatta in the World) with three sailing boats, conferences, school meetings for students, safety courses for all.... and so much enthusiasm of the participants who share - regardless of the so-called special needs - the sport activities with everyone, always by active protagonists, thanks to the available accessible boats (such as Càpita - one of a kind daysailer which can be board and governed autonomously, by using the proper wheelchair, being it manual or electrical, or with other special needs/aids; and the Pontoon Boat and others), and thanks to the Association's site accessible to all... 563 occasions/person were dedicated and 118 days were specifically organized for activities that take place at sea, outdoor, where weather conditions and other operational aspects can hinder their implementation.

"Theese are very important numbers" (reports President Daniele Passoni), which are added to the previous year (over 8500 occasions/person), always with a constructive inclusion of people so-called disabled (physical, sensory, fragile, patients terminally ill) together with so-called able-bodied ones, by implementing amazing continuous initiatives in collaboration with, among others, the Mental Health Centre from Gorizia-I and with positive impacts on the quality of the daily life of people, all people (increased self-esteem, independence, acquisition of skills, growth of social relations, cultivation of the proper dreams, inclinations, recognition of the proper role,...). A 2023 so full of activities and satisfaction that motivate even more to face and program this 2024 richer and richer truly for all.
