The crew of 12 sailed over 3,800 nautical miles from Yokohama, Japan to Oahu, Hawaii, conducting ocean surface sampling for plastic pollution. While at sea, the crew also sighted debris from the March 11, 2011 tsunami that devastated Japan’s Northwest coast, providing data to oceanographic researchers about how the ocean currents move.
  • Finally, James Muller (San Francisco Estuary Partnership) will give a short presentation on the results of the San Francisco Bay and Delta Honey Pot Day events in 2012. Since its introduction to northern California in 2011, the Honey Pot Day program , funded by the Department of Boating and Waterway’s Clean Vessel Act Program, has successfully worked with boaters, marinas, yacht clubs and cruises to educate boaters on the issues related to illegal sewage discharge. James will also provide participants with information on how to get involved.
