A New Rainbow Warrior Sets Sail

At a ceremony in Berne-Motzen Germany. Greenpeace launched the third version of the protest vessel the Rainbow Warrior. Built as a campaigning vessel she carries state of the art communications equipment, two fast rescue boats and can support a helicopter. Her unique A-frame masts carry 1260m2 of sail helping keep her carbon footprint to a minimum and making her one of the most environmentally friendly vessels of her class.

We said the Earth needed a new warrior, and each of you answered that call: on Friday 14 October, we smashed a bottle of champagne across the bow, and launched the world’s first ship built from the keel up to win the battle for the future of the Earth.
