From the shores of Hawaii, and the shores of the mainland the #MegaExpedition   has begun… 24 sailboats are out in the middle of the Pacific collecting more plastic measurements in 3 weeks than have been collected in the past 40 years combined. Any day now we expect to hear from Stella Diamant, the Mega Expedition Coordinator, onboard Extreme H2O as they traverse the notorious Pacific Garbage Patch where so much of these plastics congregate. ASA will be conducting satellite interviews with +The Ocean Cleanup team detailing what they are seeing and how their historic missing is progressing. Stay tuned for more updates!

The ‪#‎MegaExpedition‬ organized by The Ocean Cleanup has begun. Some boats have already left, and others are leaving over the next few days. Their mission is to collect more plastic measurements in three weeks than have been collected in the past 40 years combined. This will give the team of researchers the information they need so The Ocean Cleanup can start the fight against oceanic plastic pollution. ASA has a correspondent onboard one of the boats and we'll be providing regular updates as she sails through the Great Pacific Garbage patch...
The ASA will be providing exclusive content from the Pacific Garbage Patch as ASA certified instructor Bob Solliday participates in the Mega Expedition, a research component of The Ocean Cleanup project.

We have a new series called New Horizons ( #ASANewHorizons‬ ), which will take a look at the many cruising grounds and sweet sailing spots in the US and abroad.

First up is Grand Traverse Bay / Lake Michigan. We asked Rod Call from Great Lakes Sailing Co. in Michigan about sailing in the gorgeous waters of the north.

As we further promote the efforts of +The Ocean Cleanup (and the #MegaExpedition ‬) aimed to rid the world’s oceans of toxic plastic, we thought it might be cool to create a fun quiz about #PlasticPollution  !
As sailors, we believe the oceans need help and protection. Take our quiz and learn more about oceanic plastic pollution and what ASA and The Ocean Cleanup are doing to help!

Here’s a list of 10 everyday phrases that you may not have realized were born in the days when sailing made the world go round… wait… is that a nautical phrase?
Sailing was the hinge of western civilization for hundreds of years, as result sailors’ slang & terminology are rooted in the English lexicon and still exists profoundly to this day.

Several of these etymologies are BS, including square meal. See http://worldwidewords.org. i have never ever heard of painting a ship blue after the death of her captain. Yards a-cockbill, sure. But not blue.

At least you didn't include posh or brass monkey.
