To further the ideals set during the Grenelle de la Mer and to raise awareness, the Eco Nautic Challenge offers the opportunity to build a Multimono, as part of a national or international project. The idea behind this project is to build a multi-talent and diverse team, with people of all ages, who will work together towards a common goal, building an unusual and eco-designed boat (see tab “An example to follow” on Trébeurden Sailing Club).
Participants will share their adventure on the social networks, photograph, film and exchange with other challenges, come up with a communication strategy to search for partnerships, and show the sponsors’ colours in their sails, like our ocean racing heroes! The idea is to learn together, so that everyone can do what they enjoy the most:gluing, sanding, creating and producing images, writing, hull decoration, creating events with local nature associations to expand the permanent exhibition around the building yard, etc… There are many different “jobs” available when building such a masterpiece!
Jean Luc Van Den Heede is our sponsor and actively helps us find the budget equivalent to the average Vendée Globe challenge to fund 150 hull kits!
The Eco Nautic Challenge has many targets: daring to act, team work, living a great adventure, equipping towns and villages with their first school boat to train up new sailors! It is urgent to share and pass on our passion! Joining in with the great sailing events would be wonderful (Vendée Globe, Semaine du Golfe). Locally, it is easy to have a fleet of 3 school boats, crewed by 30 primary, middle or secondary school pupils, every 2 hours, with extra family-based activities with the partner sailing club. Of course, there are also regional and national events.
