We’ve been in South Carolina for just over a month. Now it’s time to keep moving. Our plan is to sail North. I have had the chance to spend some time home and to work on Resilience. Now it’s time for Kiera to sail through her home waters. This summer we plan to work and film in the Northeast and Maine. Our excitement to work on the East coast has led to a spreadsheet full of film subject candidates, a list of lectures to give and an ambitious route. I have no doubt that June, July and August will race by. In September, our plan is to make our way back to South Carolina to continue work on Resilience.
In addition to our typical work, this year we will be focused on developing Apparent Winds organizationally, raising much needed funding, building the first iteration of our education programs and working to complete the final stage of Resilience’s conversion into a fully operational research vessel.
We’re very excited to begin releasing videos from Season 2 on YouTube starting in June. Our 2nd Season will cover our journey down the coast of Central America and through the Panama Canal to Guna Yala (aka San Blas Islands, Panama). The lower latitudes were a welcome change from the cold wet summer in the Pacific Northwest and blustery winter in California. If you haven’t already, please subscribe to our YouTube channel to get notifications of new episodes and to help support our work on that platform!
There’s plenty of work to do and we certainly have our hands full. Please wish us luck, follow along and keep in touch!
