Eco Sailing Project, voilier zéro-émission autour du monde

<p> We are <strong>four longstanding friends</strong>, travel enthusiasts, passionate about the current environmental challenges and recently graduated from business and engineering schools. </p> <p>  </p> <p> We decided to fulfill <strong>a common dream of adventure: sailing around the world, while minimizing our environmental impact</strong>! Departure scheduled for September 2014. </p> <p> <img alt="Worldmap-parcours" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/92743/worldmap-parcours.jpg"></p> <p> If we wanted to discover the world, we also have a profound desire to <strong>share our environmental convictions</strong>.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Thus, we set up this pioneering project: <strong>transforming a classic sailboat 1978 into an energy self-sufficient yacht able to circumnavigate the globe without a drop of fuel</strong>. Our motivation is to demonstrate the tremendous potential that green energy offer when they are associated with a change of behavior, a knowledgeable use of these natural resources. </p> <p>  </p> <p> To this, add a total respect of the different principles of eco-navigation (<strong>a comprehensive ecological approach</strong>: equipment and products used, food, respect for ecosystems, etc.), the realisation of <strong>marine studies</strong> (scientific samples, electronic buoys deployment, observations of ecosystems) , and many awareness-raising actions.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Thus we chose to broadcast, throughout our journey, <strong>a fortnightly web-series </strong>combining navigation update, narrative of stopover areas, and presentation of on board and on land eco-friendly actions.   </p> <p> In addition, our journey will be followed by many <strong>school and hospitalized children</strong>: a continuous link with the crew and educational activities will be implemented in order to discover the world’s fauna and flora and how to better protect it.   </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Classe_bretagne" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/92448/Classe_Bretagne.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> After the trip: a <strong>documentary </strong>and a <strong>book</strong>, as well as many <strong>conferences</strong> to relate our adventure.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>The boat: Amasia</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Identity" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/99083/Identity.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Very different from series models typical of modern shipbuilding industry, <strong>Amasia is like an invitation to travel under the banner of sustainable development</strong>.<strong> Favouring stability and durability of the material over performance</strong>, it guarantees a significant safety to the crew.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Sch_mas_boat_eng" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/99081/Sch_mas_boat_Eng.jpg"></p> <p> <img alt="Sch_mas_boat_eng2" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/99082/Sch_mas_boat_Eng2.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>The crew</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Plong_e_indon_sie_et_noms" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/92997/Plong_e_Indon_sie_et_noms.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Martin Delapalme - Captain</strong></p> <p> Martin was born in Paris but has spent every holiday in the Gulf of Morbihan in Brittany. It was thus hard to resist the call of the sea. Great sportsman, Martin has sailed for years in the Atlantic Ocean and in the Mediterranean Sea. He is logically the captain of Amasia.</p> <p> Experienced handyman, his knowledge of sailing allows him to lead the renovation of the boat in Brittany, and then to provide maintenance and repairs during the world tour.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Bérenger Laurent - Technical and Multimedia Manager</strong></p> <p> Berenger is a man of challenges. Two years ago, the idea of the sailing world tour germinated in his mind during a family cruise.</p> <p> With a training background in engineering specialized in sustainable development, he has developed significant electrical skills. He is thus in charge of the transformation of the boat and will ensure the maintenance of electrical systems during the trip. Passionate about photo and video, he is also the Multimedia Manager.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Pierre Laparre - Environmental Manager</strong></p> <p> Since childhood Pierre is fascinated by large sailing races. His grandfather introduced him very young to the boating world. His extensive experience at sea makes him the first mate on Amasia.</p> <p> Business school graduate with a specialization in sustainable development, he is the Environmental Manager of the project. He for instance ensures the the respect of the principles of eco-navigation before and after departure, and is in charge of the pedagogic programs for children.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>François Allemand - Partnerships Manager and Treasurer</strong></p> <p> Graduated from a Master Degree in Management, François has traveled extensively. After traveling many countries land side, he now has a deep desire to sail the oceans.  Quiet, thoughtful, his management skills make him the steward of this great adventure. Gastronome, he will also be the cook on board, a very important post for the morale of the crew, with a particular attention to the origin of the products used.</p> <p>  </p> <p> For more information about our project, visit our <strong>website:</strong> <a href="http://www.ecosailingproject.com/" target="_blank">www.ecosailingproject.com</a></p> <p>  </p> <p> You can also follow our news on our <strong>Facebook page:</strong> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/EcoSailingProject" target="_blank">Eco Sailing Project</a></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>Details of the rewards:</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>A tree planted</strong>: you choose if your tree is planted <u>in Senegal, in Peru or in India.</u> You also have <u>the choice, for each country, between several species with very different characteristics</u>: mango and palm trees produce fruits for the villagers, zapote trees fight against desertification, mangrove trees protect coastlines from tsunamis, etc.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Recycled sail toilet kits and bags</strong>: in partnership with Au Fil des Voiles, <u>Eco Sailing Project launches its own recycled sail accessories brand</u>!
