I’m Kerry Daigle, the newest member of With the Winds. I was first introduced to this project in a casual conversation with Henry and Grant in September, and I knew instantly that I wanted to be involved. Although I don’t share their sailing expertise, I have always been passionate about the sea and ocean conservation. Fortunately, Middlebury College allows and encourages flexibility in student pursuits over our January semester. Once I decided I wanted to get on board, the logistics came together quickly and my participation soon became a reality.
This fall I am contributing what I can to help with Henry and Grant’s extensive planning, but my real work will begin at the start of their voyage. I will be posting updates of their whereabouts and their current progress, as
well as serving as a contact for questions from any followers. As for my independent project at sea, I am still in the process of developing what exactly I want to do. I look forward to updating you all with my ideas when they are nailed down.
In the meantime, I’d love for you to check out my new section on the about us page to learn more about why I am so excited to take part in With the Winds.
