Hello from sunny Montana!
Please note I will be out of the studio and on assignment from February 20 until March 6.
Cameras in hand, Iâ€™m heading forÂ a voyage on the Lord Nelson, one of two sailing vessels in the world designed and built to enable people of all physical disabilities to sail on equal terms. We’ll be navigating from the Bahamas to Bermuda, straight through the middle of the Bermuda Triangle.
You can track the ship here: http://jst.org.uk/track-our-ships/
The Lord Nelson (and sister vessel, The Tenacious) are British tall ships commissioned and owned by the Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) whose mission is to promote the integration of people of all physical abilities through the challenge and adventure of tall ship sailing.
People with disabilities constitute our nationâ€™s largest minority group – a group in which any of us could be a part of at any time.
The JST has partnered with the US organization, Americaâ€™s Freedom Sailor, to help build and operate the first and only American tall ship based on the principles of Universal Design enabling those with special needs to sail alongside their able-bodied family and friends. Think of it like Eagle Mount for sailing adventures!
This is the first partnered trip between the two organizations in an effort to build awareness around this monumental American project!Â Iâ€™m thrilled to be joiningÂ as the photographer of the expedition!
There’s very limited Wifi along the way, but I do hope to post a few images to Instagram if I can during the trip.
Thanks so much for reading. I’ll be back in touch with a full report when I return!
Warmest winter regards,
