Pupils from Port Glasgow High School were thrilled to get up close with Greenpeace vessel Rainbow Warrior as she made her way up the Clyde on route to the COP26 climate summit on 01 November.
The pupils were on board Alba Venturer as part of their CashBack with Communities voyage and greeted the iconic vessel, which carried a crew of young climate activists, with a Mexican wave. The Greenpeace crew responded with a resounding blast of their horn. The footage of the boats together appeared on Channel Four news that evening, much to the delight of Skipper Craig Hodgart who described the experience as the highlight of his season. The following day, we received a message from a mechanic on board Rainbow Warrior saying that they were really grateful for the support shown by the Alba Venturer crew.
