I have had the chance to make my 4th awareness session on the protection of the oceans in the International Sharing School of Madeira in Funchal with Joe Ribbins and Eugenia Mendez, two new members of Children for the Oceans.
I released the Argos Buoy provided to me by the CNES and which will allow to follow the currents in the Mediterranean Sea.
Ferdinand de Lesseps French School kindly accepted my invitation for an awareness session at the last minute as my initial awareness session was scheduled in Corsica in Bonifacio.
Jean Daniel Monnier with his students welcomed me on Friday 5th of October. The session was very interactive. The students had a lot of stories to tell me and how they tried to integrate environment in their daily life.
I plan to come back in a couple of months to see if they have made some changes and applied the tips included in the leaflet I distributed, which aim at protecting the oceans.
Due to strong winds, we have had to adapt our itinerary and we could not go to Corsica. The captain of Gulden Leeuw decided to stop at Palma de Majorca. The sea was very warm, we saw only few fishes and a lot of plastic items floating on the surface of the sea…
Hopefully we had also some good time sailing and enjoying sunset!
