60 - Sailing S/V Julia: Part 3 - We Got Stuck in the Pacific Garbage Patch!

Our second passage across the Pacific Ocean finally begins! San Francisco Bay gifted us a lovely fog to get started and off we went back out under the Golden Gate Bridge. The first few days at sea were a bit rough as we sailed upwind to avoid some nasty weather to the south of us. When we were finally able to turn and head towards the trade winds, we found ourselves smack in the middle of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. And sure enough, Julia got hooked on several large pieces of fishing net. Jumping into the middle of the ocean to free the props was one of the most nerve-wracking moments I've had on a boat, but fortunately the seas were calm and everything went okay. For those curious about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and what you can do to reduce your impact on Ocean Pollution, here are a few links: GPGP: https://marinedebris.noaa.gov/info/patch.html Ocean Pollution: http://www.noaa.gov/resource-collections/ocean-pollution How You Can Help: http://ocean.si.edu/ocean-news/how-you-can-help-ocean Be sure and subscribe to catch lots more videos coming up!
