Afternoon lesson plan aboard @raincoastconservation research vessel Achiever was windward sailing in the Salish Sea. Plying the Coast Salish territory through the power of wind and tide.
Class is in session! Raincoast vessel Achiever is a floating classroom exploring the Salish Sea with conservation leaders of tomorrow.
Achiever heading south for her inaugural trip of 2018. This week we set sail with a lucky group of high school students from Victoria. Stoked to be helping to mentor the next generation of Salish Sea Stewards, and always an honour to share space with the legendary Raincoast team!
Could you join Raincoast aboard our research vessel in 2018? "Over the past 12 years and countless nautical miles Raincoast’s dedicated research vessel Achiever has clocked in over 10,000 engine hours plying coastal waters to support our research, education and conservation programs. 2017 was no different with Achiever spending 7 months during spring, summer, and fall in the Great Bear Rainforest and the Salish Sea. In May, our spring ‘hunts’ visited lush estuaries as the days grew longer and bears were down low grazing on sedges. Marine wildlife started to make their way back to the rich, cold waters of the coast. Their annual migration to foraging areas beginning and lasting well into fall."

We're grateful for many things - not least a fantastic staff. Pictured here is Nick Sinclair -@sinclairne - skipper of our research vessel Achiever. From leading trips into the Great Bear Rainforest with research partners, media and guests to converting Achiever into a floating classroom for youth engagement, Nick keeps us safe, entertained and always looking forward to the next time aboard. #pnw #sailing #conservation #thanksgiving Photo by April Bencze.
