If your total sailing experience was a couple of hours, would you sign up to join 13 other women whom you’d never met for a 21 day offshore passage from Brazil to French Guyana? Sarah Richardson did… Join her as she tells and shows us her experiences on the 72’ research vessel, Sea Dragon, as a crew member of Exxpedition Amazon.
Sarah will also present a documentary about the work of Exxpedition, which is “a series of women’s voyages to make the unseen seen, from the toxics in our bodies to the toxics in our seas”.
Sarah Richardson has been concerned about environmental and social issues since she was very young. By participating in Exxpedition, she was able to combine these interests with the opportunity to discover whether she liked sailing. Sarah lives on Quadra Island with her husband and two daughters, and is excited to share her experiences in the Atlantic aboard Sea Dragon and also with Exxpedition Great Lakes in August 2016.
