In 2017, Lisa Blair became the first woman to sail solo around Antarctica with one-stop. It was a trip that nearly ended badly – her sailboat Climate Action Now dismasted near Cape Town. Now, she’s heading out again to sail non-stop, solo, and unassisted around Antarctica in less than 100 days.
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the scale of climate change. Lisa hopes to inspire individuals to take small actions. It’s why her boat is covered in colorful notes – each note is a pledge or idea. Whether that’s biking more or using a reusable coffee cup, Lisa’s message is that we can make a difference.
Keep up-to-date on Lisa's movements as she attempts to break the world record and be the fastest person ever to circumnavigate Antarctica solo. Beautiful and engaging data visualizations from Flourish will allow you to track her progress in near real-time.
Lisa will be sharing her journey with the world using Canva. As a solo sailor, she needed something quick and easy to design social posts, video messages, and blog graphics.
