News Release from Save Falls of Clyde - International, Nov 15, 2021

Following on from the COP26 event, held recently here in Glasgow, Falls of Clyde International Ltd are pleased to announce that our bid to remove the Falls of Clyde historic tall ship, from Honolulu Harbour, has been accepted by the state officials at the Department of Transportation (Harbours) in Hawaii. This will be subject to our full compliance with U.S./Hawaii procurement requirements and U.S. Tax and Labour laws.

Now we can work with engineering support to make plans to bring her home to Scotland, where it is planned that she will be rebuilt to sail the oceans as she once did. It is proposed that having established significant new technology contacts at the recent COP26 event - and in typical Clyde Shipbuilding history - she will become a demonstrator vessel for clean emission innovative technologies.

We are happy to talk to potential partners, solutions providers, event sponsors and investors, interested in clean emission Sailcargo, education at sea and skills training with communities as part of the process.

She is finally coming home!

Donations to help rebuild the Falls of Clyde can made at, www.foci.scot

We are setting up other platforms to make it easy to support this effort.
