Nothing like what we've done before! The same sailing adventure and liveaboard experience as our traditional OBT (young adult) trips--but with a new twist: community engagement on the biggest issue of our time.
The climate is changing, here as everwhere. Lake Superior is warming; there is less ice cover; food chains are shifting. Click here to learn more. We are using our own observations, as well as data from local scientists and universities, to advance the discussion of climate change and move to climate solutions, in every port we visit.
The project has three main goals:
1. Continue our tradition of authentic, no-nonsense cruising and living aboard
2. Engage in, learn about, and become active in climate change issues.
3. Increase climate change awareness and build alliances in the climate change movement in Lake Superior communities.
4. Expose young adults to environmentally sustainable lifestyle choices

How did the first trip go?
It was fabulous! With three hearty crew along with our family of four, we sailed to four ports in southwestern Lake Superior. We presented six times, held numerous open houses, did homeschooling kid events, and reached over 300 people with our message about climate change on Lake Superior. See our Facebook page for pictures from Sea Change 2014.
Next trip will be May 9th to June 7th, 2015. Cost: $400.00
