We have had an email from Ross Porter with an invitation to a fundraising event at Hamliton house on the 12th March.
I would like to invite you and your transition collective to:
An Inspiring Celebration of the Future of Sail Transport
Launching a pioneering project to operate trans Atlantic passenger sailing ships
Delicious Mexican Supper
Dance to the amazing Calico Jack Gypsy Jazz Band
Hamilton House, Bristol, March 12th 2016
4:30pm – 7pm Open Forum – 8pm till late Supper and Music
VoyageVert’s plan is to provide a viable, sustainable alternative to flight by establishing a network
of ultra fast passenger sailing ships using the latest yacht design technology.
The project is at the research and planning stage, with the first trial vessel anticipated for 2018.
We invite you to the project launch fundraising evening to enjoy a meal together, hear our presentation and discussion about the project and celebrate with some fantastic music. We hope you will support us with your input, involvement, and partnership, as well as having a thoroughly enjoyable evening!
From 4:30pm join us for a welcome drink, the forum will open at 5pm.
Contribute to this more in depth involvement and discussion. We would like you as our peers and prospective partners / associated organisations to contribute your views and questions on how VoyageVert ties into your objectives and how they can inform us. We want this project to be integrated into and complementary to other existing and planned green transport solutions.
So if you are involved in green transport, tourism and related sectors or simply have a passion for the idea of passenger sail transport then please attend.
From 8pm join us for a brief presentation on the project and enjoy a Burrito supper and then be entertained by our headline act Calico Jack.
– “an accordion-led, stomping folk-fusion. Expect a melodic mashup of Eastern European folk, sea shanties and carnival fun driven by galloping beats.”
