What is a Velella ?

The Velella consists of a colony of individual animals coexisting together to withstand the difficult environment of the Ocean. These individuals, known as Polyps, have each a role in the colony. Connected by feeding tubes, each individual can achieve a different task for the development of the colony! 

The crew aboard Sunpiper would like to operate as well as a Velella. In order to achieve our common goal, we each have an expertise. Challenged by the ever changing weather and environment our responsibilities are carried out as unity.
