Description

Join Us

You’re invited to a once-in-a-lifetime party with the crew of the Golden Rule peace boat, and the world premiere of the documentary, “Peace Sail: The Story of the Golden Rule.


Program

From 3-5pm on Sunday February 25th, party guests will be invited to see the Golden Rule and enjoy conversation with the crew. Wine and snacks will be served followed by the film premiere and a silent auction.


Party with a Purpose

It has been sixty years since the Golden Rule’s attempted voyage to the Marshall Islands to interfere with U.S. atmospheric nuclear bomb testing.

In celebration we will be raising funds for the Golden Rule’s upcoming voyage to Hawaii, the Marshall Islands, Japan and maybe even the Korean Peninsula. With the world once again worried about the possibility of nuclear war, this is the time to raise public awareness about the need to abolish nuclear weapons once and for all. Sailing this historic little anti-nuclear sailboat across the Pacific is a dramatic way to spread the word in the U.S. and around the globe.



Boat Tours

Tours of the historic Golden Rule sailboat, docked at the venue, will take place from 2 pm to 6 pm (before, during and after the event).

Orange County residents and media are also invited to tour the historic sailboat on Friday and Saturday, and possibly even to go out sailing. The Golden Rule crew and project directors will hold a press conference Friday, February 23 at 10:00 a.m. at the dock in front of the Newport (Boy Scout) Sea Base (1931 West Coast Highway, Newport, CA). Call Helen Jaccard at 206-992- 6364 or email her at vfpgoldenruleproject@gmail.com if you’d like to be on a reservation list to go sailing or to arrange for an interview.


Sponsored by Nevada Desert Experience, Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, Pax Christi Orange County, and Physicians for Social Responsibility.
