A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children.
- John James Audubon
Adventures on the Anna Rose, a yacht deep in the Solomon Islands.
Growing up on water and finally making it to one of the last truly remote and epic places to sail. 1300 hours. 16° 42’ 07” s 167° 24’ 58” E The wind started to howl as we rounded the southern tip of the island of Maleluka, deep in the heart of the South Pacific. We were sailing from the Temotu Province of the Solomon Islands to Port Vila, the capital of Vanuatu. "We need to reef the main! This is the wind we were waiting for!" Our skipper Chris’s face was split into a huge smile even as he shouted out directions to us. We could barely hear him over the air roaring through the rigging.
