messing about in boats

The People’s Boat

Posted in Sailing by Joseph Moore on October 14, 2009

I stumbled across The People’s Boat this morning – it’s a neat concept, similar to the Million Dollar Homepage idea. People or companies can buy a 25sqcm ‘pixel’ on the boat (a class 40) which will compete in the Portimao Global Ocean Race 2011-2012. Once the race is over, skipper Alex Alley will auction the boat off for charity. Don’t know which charity – that’s still to be decided – but I guess it’s early days yet. If money gets raised for charity and Alex gets to go sailing for a year, then that’s all good by me. Get involved if you can!

    Thanks for that Joe

    Much appreciated. People can get ‘onboard’ for as little as £25 or literally as much as they want to spend. The more pixels people buy then the bigger their image on the boat.
    Great for armchair sailors and companies alike.

    Keep up the good work…

    Alex (skipper)
