Tackling the Plastic Crisis in our Ocean!

Update posted by Nancy Wendel On Apr 02, 2020

About 2 weeks ago we were informed that unfortunately our eXXpedition legs were being postponed because of Covid-19. This is, of course, understandable and the right thing to do. Right now we are all concentrating on staying healthy. It has taken me a little while to process this and also to plan out how I would proceed, hence the delay in this post.

We have recently been advised of our rescheduled dates for next year. I hope to be on that ship once the time comes but, in the meantime, my focus is to take care of myself and my loved ones. I am staying at home as much as possible while reaching out virtually to those I love. Even though we cannot be in the same room right now, it does not mean we cannot be connected. I am also searching for courses in environmental sciences to keep me sane and to make the most out of a bad situation.

To those who have supported me already, thank you. I will keep you updated on any further changes. Please stay safe and well. Take care of each other and yourselves. Hopefully, we see the end of the virus soon but, for now, we need to look out for one another. Many people are struggling now financially, physically and mentally as a result of this virus. If anyone needs someone to talk to, I am always here for a chat and to help the best I can.

Merry Christmas!! Thank you to my donors so far! I have sent all the current donations to eXXpedition today. So far I have received a little under 1000 euros for this great cause. Thank you all for your help!! The countdown is on... 4 more months to go before I set sail. ⛵

In the next four months to prepare I will be completing some revision of sailing course notes, continually reading up on the plastic problem we have and following updates from the eXXpedition. I hope to be as informed and ready to undertake this huge privilege by April!!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you a Happy New Year !!!
