Big Bottle Of Wine Party Update

Message from Phil Wade – Marine Inspirations 

It is now over two weeks since the Big Bottle of Wine Party and apologies for the delay in getting a report to you.

Below is a short report that we have put up on the Marine Inspirations website in case you are interested in how it all worked out in the end. All went very well, the weather behaved and we raised some good money while having lots of fun.Once again the human fruit machine was a great success and made everyone laugh.

Each year the Big Bottle of Wine Party gets better and better and this year was no exception

This year the party was held at the Hotel Horizonte which overlooks the harbour and has fantastic views. Our party was held in the Panorama Bar which is well named with glass windows right across the front and has a 3 meter square screen on which we posted our Marine Inspirations photos, very well received and an excellent showcase for what we do.

We had 130 people attend the party and took in 11,400 euros, most of which is profit as the food and wine are both sponsored so our expenses are pretty small. At the party we announced that we have now got three air tickets pledged to fly youngsters in for our next trip in June. The sponsors are Master Yachts, Sturge Taylor and Astilleros Shipyard, A very big thank you to them.

We also announced that we are going to do another 12 day trip in October and for this we will bring two less advantaged kids from a UK inner city charity as well as two from Sail Africa in Durban so it will be a cultural exchange and should be very interesting. At this stage it looks like it will be an all-girl affair. As soon as this was announced at the party we were immediately donated the two air tickets from the UK – Thank you Aigua Sea School and the yacht A Sulana. If anyone else would like to sponsor and flight or even part of one, then please let us know by sending an email to pandawade@gmail.com

A very big thank you to all of our sponsors and helpers who make this event such a big success. In particular a huge thank you to Richard Masters (Master Yachts supplied the food) for his moral support and also to Carlos Feliu who every year fills up the big bottles with his superb wine free of charge.

See you all next year??

If you did not make it this year then make a point of joining us in 2020

Cheers and thanks to everyone who helped make this event such a success. – Phil
