Since their founding in 2004, Sailing Anarchy has enjoyed a good relationship with Sailors for the Sea, the only conservation group focused on the sailing community. We’ve done our best to promote their mission and they’ve given us some good information – but we never imagined that they’d be ruling the country!
The organization’s science advisor, Dr. Jane Lubchenco, has been nominated by Barack Obama as the next head of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and pending senate approval, this sailor will run one of the most important organizations in the US – to us, at least.
Congratulations to Dr. Jane and SftS – this is the kind of change we were hoping for. Now about that economy…
