Honorary home port status given!
Hi and thanks for you support by signing this petition!
After grinding through the various committees and so on, the motion to grant Honorary home port status was passed by the Hobart City Council this week.
It's not a complete win, as the Council decided against flying the Sea Shepherd flag when the Bob is in port, but still, there is recognition for the ship and the connection the Bob has with Hobart.
It's a bit of nice news, thanks to your help!
There will be a civic reception for the ship and crew later this year when the Bob gets back to Hobart, where formal declaration along with friendship placques will be exchanged.
This makes it the second Australian city to grant this status, as the City of Fremantle granted Friendship City and honorary home port status to the Steve a few years back!
Cheers and keep fighting the good fight!
