Dean and Migaloo 2 Hervey Bay Sunset

“Sailing the Winds of Change 2012 and Beyond” is a multi media event based around an exciting sailing adventure from Byron Bay to Cairns with a flotilla of yachts. By using the latest technology and interactive media and by utilizing social and traditional media and direct contact the Flotilla intends to inform and inspire people on the direction humanity needs to travel in 2012 and into the future. Each yacht will represent themes of issues we would like to bring awareness to and change e.g. Climate change, Whaling, Ocean health, Indigenous issues, Herb freedoms, Whale communication, Deforestation, Mayan Calendar, Peace, Social and Environmental issues etc.

The flotilla plan to leave Byron Bay around the beginning of June and sail with the humpback whales during their northern migration up the east coast of Australia to Hervey Bay, the Great Barrier Reef and onto Cairns by the end of November. The fleet will do shows/ at large ports along the way which may include presenting Films, Talks, Music, Workshops and NV actions while at the same time exploring and exposing local issues to Media and the huge online audience this journey will attract.

Live internet programs will stream every second day at a regular time, showing the fleets activities, including live music and interviews with the various personalities involved in the flotila and from around the world including information on the issues. The intention is to have a massive social media presence which will include different levels of subscription based interactivity. Video On Demand of relevant docos will be available onsite.

The Flagship of the fleet will be Migaloo 2 a 45 ft fiberglass yacht that was purchased in 2010 with the aim of bringing awareness to whaling and ocean health issues. Skipper and Visionary of the journey is Dean Jefferys, long time activist, multi media practitioner and documentary filmmaker.
