Bali Discovery Tour's - J.M. Daniels Presents Sailing Ships of Friendship From Bali to the People of Phuket and Cebu.


(7/16/2005)

On Friday, June 24, 2005, Bali Discovery Tour's President Director, J.M. Daniels, presented four small phinisi sailing ship models to the people of Cebu, Philippines and Phuket, Thailand to symbolize the many bonds shared between the three popular Southeast Asia island destinations.

The Ships, small replicas of the large traditional sailing fleet that still ply the waters connecting Indonesia's 17,508 islands, each bear a unique registration number which will allow tracking of the ship's voyages via a special web site as they are set loose on rivers and seaways around the world.

As reported on balidiscovery.com, [Largest Sailing Ship Armada Sets Sail from Bali], a local cruise operator in Bali - Indonesian Cruises hatched the idea as a means of publicizing Indonesia's long history as a seafaring people and as a means to raise funds for the Komodo Foundation which provide economic assistance to the people living in or near the Komodo National Park.

Daniels brought the 4 sailing models with him to Cebu where he was a featured speaker at a Regional Tourism Conference [See: Semone & Daniels to Address Cebu Conference], presenting the vessels to representatives of Phuket and Cebu to underline the solidarity shared between Phuket, Cebu and Bali as "people of the Pacific."

In presenting the ships, Daniels asked that they soon be released into seas adjoining Cebu and Phuket and that the location and launch dates be recorded on the tracking web site so their progress can be continually monitored. Should the ships eventually wash ashore in some distant place, its finder can trace the voyage of the vessel on the web site and report its "landing" by e-mail to be recorded on the electronic "ship's log."

Daniels presented the ships to Patria Aurora "Dawnie" B. Roa and Agnes Almendras Magpale representing Cebu, and Peter Semone of the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) who promised to deliver the two ships on behalf of Bali to the people of Phuket.
