Alterface’s Team Propaganda and volunteer sailing initiative, Zachte Kracht, have launched a fundraising campaign to raise money for the next 2500 mile leg of the Transquadra race.

The second leg of the Transquadra Race takes place in March 2018 and will see the entire fleet cross the Atlantic to Le Marin on Martinique.

Zachte Kracht is an association of volunteers who channel their passion for sailing into helping disadvantaged young people. The organisation owns a dedicated sailing yacht at Nieuwpoort harbour, Belgium and gives these young people a respite from difficult circumstances by offering them the chance to experience sailing. Many also have physical or mental limitations.

Team Propaganda sponsorship will provide 200 sailing trips for disadvantage young people

“Our purpose is to briefly lift the young people out of their problematic situation and help build their confidence,” explains Winnie Berteloot, Chairman and Treasurer of Zachte Kracht.

“Taking part in our activities, they can get familiar with sailing and learn to work together in a team under professional supervision of our staff. On a sailing boat you’re depending on each other, and you have to work very closely together as a team. Our association works only with volunteers, and it gives us all an incredible satisfaction to see the smiles on the faces of the young people at the end of an active sailing day.

“We are very pleased that Team Propaganda will support our organisation by sponsoring the nautical miles they will cross during the Transquadra race. It will enable Zachte Kracht to provide meaningful and powerful sailing trips to over 200 young people during the following sailing season!”

Alterface Projects develops, manufactures and implements interactive attractions for the global market, including media-based dark rides and the world’s first interactive theatre.

The company has developed leading-edge technologies including Salto: a powerful gaming engine and show control system able to manage the whole ride including vehicles, audio, video, lighting and special effects.
