We will rent a 40-foot or longer boat and use it for social and activist projects for which a sailboat is a unique and essential venue.The boat’s first major voyage (a “trading voyage of the future” especially targeting communities with diaspora components) will be from Lazar° Cardenas, Michoacan to a port near San Jose, California.The six-week voyage will take place prior to August 2006, and the results (as well as the boat itself) will be displayed at ISEA2006, where we will also offer tours of Bay industrial ports.
