Cove Park is delighted to announce that one of this summer’s residents, Jo Royle, will be taking part in the first Peninsula West Community Development Trust’s Festival of the Arts. The Festival, which takes place here on the Rosneath peninsula on Saturday 9 June, is launched at Cove Park on Friday 8 June with a special event led by Jo Royle. Jo is internationally recognised as one of Europe’s leading female ocean yacht skippers: she will be talking about her experiences building and sailing Plastiki, a vessel made from 12000 plastic bottles which she skippered across the Pacific. Further information on the event and festival is available on facebook. Jo is at Cove Park as a Creative Catalyst resident from 8 – 18 June 2012.
