FEMALE OCEAN PLASTIC RESEARCH CREW TO STOP IN ANTIGUA
Thursday 7th November 2019

Antigua is the next stop for eXXpedition Round the World all-female crew on board sailing vessel S.V. TravelEdge.

On November 17th 2019 the Leg 2: North Atlantic Gyre from Azores to Antigua with Copernicus Marine Services crew is planning to arrive into Antigua.

Antigua, a low-lying nation with an interesting geology that is surrounded by beaches and fringed with coral reefs, is an important part of the research journey of 38,000 nautical miles with three missions ending, starting or exploring the Caribbean island and its waters.

The journey from the Azores to Antigua has taken the Leg 2 crew through the densest accumulation zone for plastic pollution in the North Atlantic where they’ve conducted important research for acclaimed scientific institutions led by Mission Leader and Science Lead Dr Winnie Courtene-Jones.

The crew will take part in a series of land-based research and community outreach activities in Antigua before a new crew will depart on Leg 3: Exploring Antigua via Green Island 23rd November – 26th November 2019 led by Mission Leader Sally Earthrowl. Later in the month the Leg 4 crew will set sail from Antigua to Aruba with the Red Ensign Group.

Public events in Antigua include an evening talk at The Clubhouse, Falmouth Harbour on 17th November 2019 where eXXpedition Science Lead, Dr Winnie Courtene-Jones and the crew of multidisciplinary women will share their stories of science at sea, sailing and solutions to the plastic issue. The event is open to the public and will start with welcome drinks at 18:00 followed by a presentation at 19:00. There will be a Q and A session after the presentation. A free event but RSVP needed via Eventbrite. Read more here.
