Fund raising Prize Draw at Beale Park Boatshow – 9-11th June 2006

General NewsFund raising Prize Draw at Beale Park Boatshow – 9-11th June

It is some time since the project went live on this website. Since then we have had some very good responses from people and donations have quietly been coming in, both on this site, but also many via www.wharram.com

Four British Yacht magazines have published news items on the project. The first and biggest piece was in Sailing Today. They kindly have let us reproduce it on this website. See below.

Individuals have come up with ideas to raise money. A Tiki 26 builder/sailor in the USA has played music at a festival in aid of the Tikopia project, others are just passing the message to many of their friends.

At the end of this week James and I will be exhibiting a 21’ Ethnic catamaran with crabclaw sail at Beale Park Boatshow http://www.bealepark.co.uk/events_item.php?id=85 We will also be raising money for the Tikopia Canoe Project with a special Prize Draw.

Ian Sharpe from Cumbria makes beautiful radio controlled sailing boat models. He has donated as first Prize for the Draw a model of the Wharram Tehini design. The model will be sailing on the lake at Beale Park during the show while tickets will be on sale at £1 each. The Draw will take place at 4.30pm on Sunday 11th . There are also 5 extra prizes of signed copies of the book ‘Two Girls Two Catamarans’ by James Wharram. We hope we can sell 1000 tickets and raise £1000 for the project.

People in the UK, try to come to Beale Park, it is a lovely day out for anyone interested in ‘real’ boats and you will have the chance to win this superb sailing catamaran model.

SEE YOU THERE

Klaus Hympendahl has just returned from a visit to Tikopia and Anuta, he has a lot of very positive news to report.
