When you scatter your loved one’s ashes, you might want time to say important things, perhaps with some special music that has particular meaning. You may wish to read some poetry or say prayers, or time alone to reflect.Scattering the ashes of your loved one at sea can help you do just that, and it’s possible all year round.

What Happens After We Scatter The Ashes?

For many this is a very important time. Some call this moment ‘moving on’. For most people it is an appropriate time to experience something good, wholesome and natural. The boat’s name, ‘Cool Runnings’, means ‘Peace be the journey’; and there is something restoring about sharing the natural environment in which you have just said your good-byes.
After you have dispersed the ashes of your loved one in the sea we will encourage you to enjoy sailing on the boat. As one writer put it, ‘there is something that touches the eternal in the sea’. The wind in your hair, the open space, the sound of water on the hull, all does its bit to bring something quiet, comforting, enriching, something healing into your day.
