Emily Penn - Skipper - Fitzroy

I met Emily on the banks of the Thames near her home in Richmond.

Emily founded eXXpedition, a not-for-profit organisation that runs sailing expeditions across the globe with all female crews, researching the effects and causes of ocean plastic.

On her latest voyage, Emily skippered a vessel through the waters of Fitzroy, just off the northwest tip of Spain to the Azures. The trip was the first leg of a round the world expedition which unfortunately got cut short by the pandemic.

You can find more information on her the company and past and future voyages here.
