Quotes (from Honolulu Advertiser Interview, June 6, 1999):
"I'm a bit nervous. It's a lot harder to find the Marquesas than Tahiti. With Tahiti your target is a 300 mile wide screen of islands.The Marquesas presents a much smaller target and its more upwind."
"The voyage is a hook to get students and people to ask questions about our lifestyle, about the choices we make. Ideally, what I'd like to do is take the next step: how do students get active in preserving the environment? How do you translate values into action?"
