The Slow Cargo Movement

New Dawn Traders move goods via a 1907 West Country Trading Ketch named Irene:

“Departing from Plymouth on Valentines day with a cargo of organic beer from Exeter brewery destined for Brest in Brittany. We will then head to Vigo in Spain to fill our hold with fine Olive oil before skirting the Canaries and Cape Verde Islands destined for Rio de Janeiro. We will then travel the coast of Brazil collecting, Cachaca, Cocoa, Coffee, essential oils and super foods from the Amazon.

Finally we will catch the trade wind through the Caribbean collecting rum before setting our sails for Bristol. Hopefully home and dry with our low carbon cargo and a ship full of stories.”
