In this episode of Point of SAIL, Principal Editor Adam Cort talks with Mary Crowley, founder and executive director of the Ocean Voyages Institute, a not-for-profit based in California that has been both educating sailors and working to preserve the health of the world’s ocean for over 40 years. Most recently, the group has launched an innovative new effort that has resulted in the removal of literally tons of plastic waste out of the Pacific, employing a combination of sail-powered vessels and GPS trackers.
