Frank Thomas Sailing has been contracted by Let’s Do It Galway, organisers of the Volvo Ocean Race stopover in Galway and sister project of team Green Dragon, to provide a tall ship for corporate hospitality during the event. The J.R. Tolkien will be in Galway from 28 May to 6 June 2009 to provide a VIP venue for corporate groups to watch the In-Port racing on 30 May and Volvo Ocean Race re-start on 6 June.
“We are very pleased to be going to Galway” says ship owner Jaap van der Rest. “It is a very exciting race and Galway is going all out to make it a fantastic event.”
