Raising the mast - to new sponsors!

Masts off to Patagonia and The North Face Junk's two newest sponsors!

Friends Bryan Hays and Lois Cunningham at Patagonia, and Karin Carter at The North Face helped connect Algalita's mission with their companies vision, outfitting our intrepid sailors with weatherproof gear and support for the journey ahead.

This past weekend we raised the mast, one of the last major tasks before Junk's "Shakedown Cruise" this coming weekend, her first short voyage to Catalina and back to test her mettle.

As the final June 1st departure fast approaches, Marcus contemplates the journey ahead......and wonders just how small a shared fuselage will become after 6 weeks at sea.
