The Freewinds and the Scientology Religion

The "Freewinds" motor vessel, while providing numerous community services to the local Carribean islands, is a religious retreat for members of the Scientology Religion.

It provides a haven to get away from day to day problems and be in an environment where one can concentrate on one's spiritual progress. Delivering the Scientology spiritual counseling to those who seek a higher awareness of themselves and their abilities.

The Freewinds is refered to by Scientologists as the Flag Ship Service Organization

A New Article on the Freewinds

Hot off the press is this very informative article about the "Freewinds" community activities.

To quote just a paragraph from the article, as it may disappear (some Internet news articles only stay up a day or two) from

"FOR 15 YEARS the MV Freewinds has helped local charities and exposed schoolchildren to the world of the sea, and on Sunday, officials of the cruise liner will stage a boat parade and musical extravaganza near the Flour Mill, at 2 p.m."

The Assistant marketing manager of Barbados Port Inc., Freida Nicholls, is mentioned in the article and mentions that the cruise liner "Freewinds" was part of the educational outreach programme.

The "Freewinds" in 2003 had approximately 1,000 school children visit to help educate them on life at sea.

In the hopes that this story stays up:
