At Sea Under Sail

Mar 09, 2018 - Sea Cloud


Intro: Setting sails on the first day of a Sea Cloud voyage is always the main event, and today was no different. Almost all the square sails, jibs, and staysails were set. But there is much more to our voyage through the Windward Islands of the Caribbean Sea than the sailing. There is the colorful culture, the fascinating geopolitical history, and the unique character of each of the individual islands—all of which make this such an exceptional expedition.

About the Author

Ian Strachan

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

One steady constant in Ian’s life has been the ocean. Born by the rocky shores of mid-coast Maine, his family repatriated to far north Queensland in Australia early on in his life where he became a dual-citizen and sparked his passion for exploring new environments. Living only an hour away from the Great Barrier Reef served to direct, if not focus, the exhilaration of discovery and set him on his current path. Returning to native soil for education, Ian was fascinated by altogether too many subjects, leaving him with a bachelor’s degree from Wheaton College in Psychobiology, focusing on animal behavior and perception, and with minors in Astronomy, History, and Environmental Science.
