Through a shared passion for all things related to the ocean, we’ve partnered with the ocean conservancy and marine research crew at Pangaea Exploration to explore the sea in search of ways that we can preserve and protect our beautiful blue waves. To kick off the partnership, we’ve invited five adventurers from around the globe to embark on the trip of a lifetime to explore and research the stunning waters of Antigua.
Pangaea Exploration’s mission is to actively strengthen the health of marine life through adventure and education. Or, put more simply — much like us here at Sperry — their goal is to connect people with the ocean.
To shed some light on what Pangaea Exploration is all about, we reached out to skipper, ocean advocate, and Pangaea co-founder Emily Penn to tell us about how she became involved with Pangaea.
Emily Penn is an oceans advocate, skipper and artist; a graduate of Cambridge University with a degree in Architecture, and the Co-founder of Pangaea Exploration. Emily is the youngest and only female recipient of Yachtmaster of the Year award. Emily currently splits her time between completing independent research-based expeditions around the globe while also managing group trips with Pangaea Explorations.
Each fall, just as the leaves begin to change, volunteers in our hometown of Massachusetts come together to participate in COASTSWEEP – a statewide beach cleanup that takes place from September through November.
