A true story of courage, determination and environmental activism and how one eco-warrior reached across global, cultural and political boundaries to unite people in her swim against plastic ocean pollution.
This collaborative effort, organized by Plastic Oceans International, resulted in a world first, with South Africa’s Sarah Ferguson becoming the first person ever to swim around Easter Island (Rapa Nui) in one go. It’s now recognized as a new Guinness World Record.
This compelling story is penned by surfer, freediver, entrepreneur and eco warrior, John McCarthy. John was also part of Sarah’s immediate team for the record-breaking swim, serving as the her lead planner, navigator and safety officer.
