Today is the day ACA certified SUP instructor, Mike Simpson, embarks on his 273 nautical mile circumnavigation of Puerto Rico!
"I'd heard the stories about large amounts of garbage in the ocean, but until I saw it first-hand along the entire eastern seaboard I really had no idea how serious it was," said Mike. "Plastic bottles are so convenient, but it's important for people to realize that convenience comes at a cost. I just ask that people seriously consider using reusable bottles whenever possible instead of disposable bottles."
The ACA wishes Mike a safe and happy journey. Stay tuned for more updates from his trip!
