The goal is to study the feasibility of using sailing companies in marine research by analyzing what has already been done on this topic, identify the success and weaknesses of each encountered project, and study the view of different actor groups on this subject. The aim is to provide results that would help strengthen this field, as well as implementing new projects linking the actors of the sailing tourism industry and marine research institutions.
