It's been a while since I posted; about a year ago I was seeking advice
on beginning a sailing adventure of my own. I got wonderful encouragement and suggestions. I'm happy to report I'll be joining a friend on his Sabre
34 on a 6-month cruise
from Raiatea to New Zealand
I'm hoping to make the trip a little more meaningful beyond my own experience. I thought a worthwhile project
would be a creative endeavor that could educate and inform the non-sailing world of the vastness, complexity and beauty of the marine environment
. There's so much out there that the public never gets to see. The product will be a book of photography
and essays that seek to capture the essence of ocean wilderness, an environment
you all know well.
To help fund the production of the book I launched a campaign on Indiegogo, a crowdfunding website. I've got a more complete explanation of the project
and a short video up on my page (also attached here). If you have 2 extra minutes I'd love if you took a peek.
The URL is: igg.me/at/oceanwilderness
or search Ocean Wilderness on Indiegogo.com, Vimeo, or YouTube. Share the link with anybody who might be interested in marine
habitats, cultures and the risks they face.
Thanks everybody for the encouragement, support and endless knowledge this forum provides.
