We needed to re-anchor Amandla this morning due to a rogue mooring ball in the Taina anchorage. As the windlass raised Amandla’s anchor chain past the 10 meters mark, we spied this lovely outboard motor attached.
Luckily, our friend John from Ruby Slippers had been visiting and helped us free the anchor chain while the Captain held position.
You never know what you will find in the Ocean, but we are learning.
Check out the Trans-Pacific Plastic Pollution Survey By Ocean Research which set sail in April to conduct the longest marine plastics survey in history. The crew arrived safely in Japan after a 63 day, 7000 mile non-stop journey from San Francisco aboard SV Sakura, a new Harbor 29 sailboat donated to the mission by my friends at WD Schock. They’ve had quite an exciting sailing journey from building the boat to departure, through voyage to landfall.
With the sailing journey complete, its now off to Baltimore to begin the lab work. We are very interested to learn from the results of the survey.
