A Sustainable Alternative to Flight: VoyageVert Speaking Tour

Join VoyageVert for an inspiring dive into the ground-breaking travel revolution that provides a viable, sustainable alternative to long-haul flight. Imagine being able to book a 7-10 day high-speed, carbon-free adventure to New York rather than a cramped 7hr flight that misses everything in between your departure and destination. The land comes into view, you're arriving by sea into a historical port after a restorative and perspective-changing journey across one of the world's largest oceans.

Co-Director, Ross Porter, 12 years a Marine Engineer and with 36,000+ nautical blue miles under his belt gives an engaging talk and invites discussion on the project that is on the path to providing an international passenger sailing network VoyageVert's ambitions are both powerful and provocative; come and add your voice to the discussion and hear about the concept designs, technology and plans at the heart of this sustainable start-up. 

This tour is supporting a 5 week 'All or Nothing' crowdfunding project to get the project to it's crucial next stage of development; the campaign runs 5 November - 10 December. See how they're getting on here http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/voyagevert-crowdfunder/.
