Boaz Sailing Competition

SST has been given a wonderful opportunity by Keith Wetmore in the form of his beautiful 52 foot Boden schooner the Boaz, that has been dedicated to serve the ocean by bringing awareness, education and research on marine pollution to the coastal communities of the eastern coast of Africa. 

It is intended that the Boaz along with its sailing crew, educators and scientists will sail for several months at a time on a circuit from Cape Town to Mauritius and Madagascar, down past Mozambique and along the Southern African coast and back to the Cape once again. On this epic journey the Boaz will be stopping at ports to provide education and resources to schools whilst promoting awareness of the detrimental effects of pollution. Simultaneously collecting necessary data both in the sea and on the coastline, along with evidence of its effects on marine life and related ecosystems to provide us with a clearer idea of the exact issues we are facing with regards to the pollution crisis in our ocean.

The Boaz will carry the SST logo and on the 9th July, will take part in a spectacular launching of the African Marine Waste Conference at the Port Elizabeth harbour, joined by other boats and their crew with Sylvia Earle and other attending delegates and VIP’s making for a fun filled event.
