I am very excited to be part of the eXXpedition voyage Round the World. It’s an all-female sailing voyage with a scientific research mission to investigate the causes of, and solutions to ocean plastic pollution. Over two years, eXXpedition will circumnavigate the globe through four ocean gyres and the Arctic.

Personal log from the Chile science director Camila Ahrendt, who was on board the entire 19 hours of Sarah Ferguson’s world record swim around Rapa Nui. In these 19 hours she kept a personal log besides her official tasks on board like taking GPS measurements, make photos every half an hour that would serve as evidence of the swim and coordinate between the South African team, the captain, crew and the mainland. In her personal log she observed life on board, what went on behind the scenes, the swimming conditions and all the emotions that come about when you are part of such an epic event. This is an unedited recount of events, straight from the log.
The rain came quickly and without warning. The umbrella was useless against the force of the downpour. The streets quickly flooded and cars sprayed the sidewalk with water. It took just minutes to be soaked from head to foot. I considered turning back to the hotel, but I was already half-way to the cinema and 300 people were waiting. My hosts at the Asian Development Bank were calling.
