When will Phoenicia reach the Caribbean?

Scroll down for more details

Deadline: 12.12.19, 12:00 GMT

Much heart, soul and personal finance is going into this project.  Costs have and still are being incurred - not only to cover vessel maintenance, but also for insurance, equipment, supplies and running the expedition office.

The expedition is increasingly arousing curiosity and international interest, especially now that the challenging Atlantic leg is underway.  The expedition offers corporate sponsors brand exposure to those in academic, educative, historic, cultural and archaeological circles as well as those with maritime, adventure and nautical interests.  Please get in touch if you would like a discussion.  All financial donations (corporate or individual) are very much appreciated.

For individual monetary donations, please contact us or make a donation via Paypal.




The expedition is very grateful to the following organisations for their support:

Competition: When will Phoenicia reach the Caribbean?

As a bit of fun, we are asking our followers and Crew to predict when we will reach the Caribbean. Make your prediction and be in with a chance of winning a prize from a package that includes: Phoenicia’s Brass Barometer, a bottle of Carthaginian wine that will have crossed the Atlantic, and a copy of ‘Sailing Close to the Wind’ signed by Phoenicia’s Atlantic Crew.

All you need to do, is send your prediction (date and hour GMT) that the ship will cross the longitude of 59 degrees West – the starting point for islands of the Caribbean as you approach from the East to: info@phoenicia.org.uk


Deadline: 12th December 12:00 GMT

Entries will be published here, on our website’s donations page, for all to see. Individuals will be identified by their initials. Of course, if you would like to make a donation at the same time, that would be gratefully received.

Thank you and GOOD LUCK!
