Staff have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of their new crews and getting the boats ready for their adventure. Mazurka, Samba and Geneve are prepped and ready. Below are the staff that will be running the Foxtrot and Sierra programs.
Program Director: Oliver Bierman Lytle
On board Mazurka: Jen Borderud (Captain), Lindley Barrow (Mate/Dive Coordinator) and Ashley Carroll (Mate/Community Service Intern).
On board Samba: James Ish Alexander (Captain), Will Steward (Mate) and Kathryn Broderick (Mate/Provisions Manager).
On board Geneve: Dave Serrahn Resnick (Captain), Kate Wicks(Mate/Marine Biology Coordinator).
The greatest challenge during the program was staying entertained during the quarantine period. Not being able to leave your boat and not having a phone, which was a crutch against boredom, it was difficult at first to stay entertained.
