As Covid-19 still casts a dark shadow over many aspects of ‘Falls of Clyde’ activity in Hawaii, we wanted to give a little something back to all of our supporters worldwide.
We have been given this stunning model of the worlds most iconic sailing vessel, the Cutty Sark.
Made of Pewter, 7.5″ x 5.5″ tall, presented in a beautiful silk lined presentation box, a really special item for any sailor or simply as a supporter of the Falls of Clyde.
You can have this, no matter where you live around the world. To win this wonderful item, all you have to do is to pledge your support for the campaign by donating through the button at the top of the page. We suggest a $5 pledge but we will leave that for you to decide. Leave your name and email address and we will contact you at the closing date if you are selected from a lucky dip draw.
All proceeds will go towards the project admin costs.
