Recently, I sent correspondence to your Club seeking help with a very significant global maritime project, the return of the City of Adelaide clipper ship to Port Adelaide, Australia.
The ship left Rotterdam today. This is a very significant component of the project and one that I am sure many of your members would be interested to see in motion.
The link provides you with some great photos of this work.
- The City of Adelaide clipper ship is the oldest in the world
- She was purpose built in the 1860’s to transport passengers to Adelaide, South Australia to develop a colony.
- She is as large as a Boeing 747
- The objective of the CSCOAL Board is to eventually restore this vessel to her former glory, however initially we need everyone to help bring her home to Port Adelaide.
For an $85 donation, tell the story/history of your club. This will be placed in a Living Time Capsule to be located close to the permanent home of the City of Adelaide clipper ship at Port Adelaide. The Time Capsule will be opened in 2039, when the envelope will be mailed to your chosen recipient or club.
I have taken the liberty of attaching flyers for both of these options. Would you please consider making a donation and promoting this opportunity to your members and their families?
I wonder if a member of your club has a family name linked to this great ship? Visit the site. Every voyage is listed with names of the crew, passengers and cargo. http://cityofadelaide.org.au/paxwiki/Main_Page
