Calling All Mariners, Anglers, and Those Interested in the Ocean!

The Unification Movement has a number of Good Go fishing boats that were donated to the UK by True Parents some years ago.

The 20ft (2nd smallest) Good Go, which was designed by Henry Masters under True Father’s guidance, is now on the water until the end of October in Gillingham Marina in Kent. It is able to take small numbers (up to 4 people plus captain) fishing or sightseeing on the Medway/Thames estuary.

If you are interested in organising, going on a trip out in the Medway estuary, or generally being involved with ocean activities, please contact C. Pollitt at: clivepollitt@aol.com

The Ocean Challenge (formerly Ocean Church) was initiated by True Father in 1981, and was a key spiritual training experience for most of the 1st generation members of the Unification Church. The programme has developed over the years and still exists today in Alaska, most significantly in the form of the annual National Ocean Challenge for youth around the world.

Eric Williamson, assistant pastor of the Scotland community, participated in the National Ocean Challenge a couple of years ago. We asked him to share a little about his experience on the programme:

“In 2019, I adventured off to Kodiak, Alaska to take part in the National Ocean Challenge. Without a doubt it was the best workshop I’ve attended and would strongly encourage all 2nd generation who are up for a challenge to apply and take part in 2022. Financial sponsorship is also available, which makes it a no-brainer!  

“It was a 3-week action-packed programme, with both spiritual and practical content, and as you can guess a lot of fish…a lot of big fish! As you know, True Father invested a lot of time, money and heart into the Ocean Providence and it’s great to see it is still thriving in America. Most days were spent out at sea on a Good Go, so I’ve now got a special connection with these boats. Being out at sea allows you to focus, meditate and bond with Mother Nature in a different way, that’s of course if you’ve got time to do that in between being sea sick…

“True Father loved to go out at sea because there were less disturbances and distractions, both spiritually and physically! From my own personal experience, I can testify to that. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got sea legs or not, if you want to connect with True Parents more closely, you must have an experience on a Good Go!”
