Sail Boat Project is a Workers’ Co-operative aiming to widen access to the sea and working towards zero emission transport for their products. On Wednesday 1 May, from 7pm there will be a chance to try and buy some of them at Brighton Sailing Club.
There will be organic olive oils, whole olives, sea salt and a selection of Portuguese wines from the Douro region, all brought to our shores by the power of wind.
You can also hear from Sail Boat’s partners Xisto Wines and New Dawn Traders, as well as find out more about the story of this local worker co-op and how it works.
Sail cargo in a nutshell: Olives grown grown by the Reigado family in Portugal, found by olive sommeliers Passeite, brokered by New Dawn Traders, shipped to Torbay by Fairtransport via the French Isle of Noirmoutier to collect Fleur de Sel, all loaded aboard Sail Boat’s Jalapeno with amazing Xisto wines and sailed to Brighton and Newhaven for collection onboard or delivery to your door Zedify cycle couriers. Also available with your veg box from Barcombe Nurseries.
All surplus from the Sail Cargo work goes to Sail Boat’s Community Sailing Fund, established to help people from community groups in Sussex access their sailing activities.
The event takes place on Wednesday 1 May 2019, 7.00-10.00pm at Brighton Sailing Club, 109-111 Kings Road, Brighton, BN1 2FN. There will be some food. Please book your free place here.
