SEALAND HELP TO SAVE THE PLANET

On November 27th last year the Sealand Cessna took off from Goodwood to photograph a unique event on the sea front at nearby Hove in West Sussex. The photography was undertaken on behalf of 350.org which is an International campaign that are building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis. The 350 Earth project was the worlds first ever global art project. In over a dozen places across the globe, citizens and artists created massive public art installations. Each art installation was large enough to be seen from space and documented by satellites, ground and aerial photography.

The final event was the event at Hove, where Thom Yorke (the lead singer of Radiohead) assembled a few thousand of his closest friends and biggest fans to brave the cold on England’s coast. Together, they formed the image of the legendary King Canute attempting to hold back the waters.

SEALAND CAPTURE SIX CRUISE SHIPS IN PORT AT SOUTHAMPTON

Six cruise ships, including some of the world’s most famous liners were photographed on behalf of Associated British Ports by Sealand when they were all in port in Southampton at the the same time on January 5th.

Cunard’s newest ship Queen Elizabeth and its sister Queen Victoria were there along with P&O Cruises’ Arcadia.

Up to 20,000 passengers arrived in or departed from the city’s four cruise terminals during the course of the day.

The other three ships in port were Fred Olsen’s Balmoral and Black Watch, and Saga Cruises’ Saga Ruby.

Sealand transmitted images electronically direct to the marketing department at Southampton minutes after landing at Goodwood. Time was of the essence as the images were required by National and International News Agencies.

SNOW HALTS PROGRESS

The Sealand offices look stunning nestling in the Winter Wonderland that was the South Downs in December. The only downside was the lack of flying which held up progress on several projects. Tess the farm office Spaniel was very stressed about this as is evident by the image . . .
