Happy Earth Day!

by Daria Blackwell 22 Apr 10:59 UTC

Every day should be earth day but, once a year, it is time to stop and reflect on what each one of us can do to help this magnificent planet we call earth.

As bluewater sailors, our members have probably seen more of the planet than most will ever see. We have also witnessed the toll human presence has taken on our beloved world. For one day, let's reflect on the absolute beauty of our home and ways that we can help reverse some of the damage people have inflicted.
