Description

Become a Sail Cargo Pioneer - Join the Sail Cargo Revolution!

We invite you to sample sail cargo products from Portugal and Spain, brought to our shores by the power of the wind.

We will have organic olive oils, whole olives, fleur de sel and an amazing selection of Portuguese wines from the Douro region - to taste and to buy during the evening.

Find out about our expanded product range and how you can place pre-orders for the arrival of Gallant (pictured) in Newhaven in early July 2019.

Hear from our partners Xisto Wines and New Dawn Traders.

This event is free, but please book a ticket so we have an idea of numbers, thank you!

  • All surplus from our Sail Cargo work goes to our Community Sailing Fund, established to help people from community groups in Sussex access our sailing activities

  • We pay producers a fair price up front, around 50-65% of the prices you pay goes direct to them, with accountability in our pricing outlined with each product

  • Importing high quality products that don’t grow on our islands, we are developing solutions that are small, simple and local. We are looking towards a future where we know we need to use less energy

  • By working towards zero emission transport we are taking practical steps in the face of climate chaos with an informed sense of urgency

  • Community supported shipping helps us keep control of food supply chains and expands the skills base of all those involved

This is a project of Sail Boat Project, a workers' cooperative, organised with support from Mutual Aid in Sussex and Unltd.
