Join Sea Shepherd UK for an unforgettable evening at the world famous 19th Century tea clipper ‘Cutty Sark’ at the Greenwich Maritime Museum on 16 September 2017 for a celebration of 40 years of direct action by Sea Shepherd.
The main event is within the museum’s unique dry dock beneath the stunning copper hull of the legendary sailing ship Cutty Sark, the world’s sole surviving composite tea clipper and fastest ship of her time – and you can also explore the decks for at least an hour during the evening.

- Captain Alex Cornelissen – CEO of Sea Shepherd Global coming in from the Netherlands
- Sam Carter – Architects and Sea Shepherd UK Ambassador
- Captain Paul Watson – Founder of Sea Shepherd – speaking via weblink and introduced by Yana and Tiger Watson
Enjoy amazing vegan food as well as a complimentary drink on arrival created by award winning chef Suzanne James – London’s distinctly British eco-friendly caterer.
There is a fundraising auction with unique and exclusive items on offer including:
