The Caprera Sailing Center presents the M.A.R.E – Marine Adventure for Research & Education – initiative, a project that aims to investigate the health of our seas through 12 weeks of sailing. This is a scientific project carried out by CVC in collaboration with One Ocean Foundation that will take a crew of naturalists and biologists to collect samples to analyze marine biodiversity and monitor environmental pollution. It will all take place aboard the sailing catamaran One, a 45-footer set up as a real floating laboratory, under the sponsorship of the Navy and with the involvement of the Ministry of Ecological Transition.

The M.A.R.E. project catamaran will sail through 23 marine protected areas and stop at 12 different Italian ports: La Maddalena, Porto Palma, Alghero, Cagliari, Palermo, Catania, Marina di Camerota, Marina di Arechi, Gaeta, Marina di Scarlino, Marina di Fezzano, Portofino, Porto Palma

Thescientific research activity will consist of collecting samples of zooplanktonic organisms, environmental DNA analysis, and searching for contaminants in the sea, monitoring environmental pollution and marine biodiversity. The working group will be led by Dr. Ginevra Boldrocchi, scientific coordinator of One Ocean Foundation and researcher at the University of Insubria.

We at the Sailing Newspaper will be present alongside the M.A.R.E. project by accompanying each of the 12 stages of the planned route for the One catamaran. In fact, at each stop we will prepare and present an Eco Portolan chart related to the territories, ports and bays covered by the initiative. See you at the first stage of M.A.R.E scheduled in La Maddalena next April 30!
