Quick hello from the Society Islands

I’ve spent the summer sailing on the 15 meter sailboat Blue Moon with Trey and Amy from Life at an Angle. You can check out their blog for more info and pictures from the trip. Lots more pictures (many I took) on their facebook page. I joined them in the Galapagos Islands and over the next 3 months we sailed about 3600 miles visiting and exploring the Marquesas Islands, the Tulamotu Islands, and the Society Islands of Tahiti, Riatea, and Bora Bora.
While I usually had the camera on them, I snuck myself into the shot form time to time.

It’s been a blast and I’ve learned a lot more about living, navigating, and loving life at sea but now it’s time for me to be headed back to the states. I’ll be visiting the great Pacific rowing race 2014 finish location in Hawaii and the start line in Monterey Bay, CA before returning to Tennessee.

About Ryan Worth

I work in outdoor recreation and as a rowing coach, doing what I love and loving what I do! I'm especially interested in sharing the outdoors and active lifestyles with others. I grew up in a family that often enjoyed boating, camping, hunting, and fishing trips. I’m also an Eagle Scout and enjoy riding bicycles, trekking, whitewater paddling, sailing, scuba diving, rock climbing, and running. I began rowing in high school. My senior year I captained the team and went to Junior Nationals for the second time. That same year I began telling my friends I wanted to row across an ocean. I continued rowing in college at UT Knoxville where I served as the novice team captain and for two years as the Club President. In 2011 I finally made that dream happen and rowed with 15 others on a n experimental catamaran, 'Big Blue', from Morocco to Barbados in a 3100 mile crossing that took 48 days. I was hooked and soon after began thinking about another crossing. Since the row I have also began sailing and have logged 4000 more sea miles in the South Pacific.

    Hi there! I just found out about your team from the new ocean wave site. Do you have your four team members and are you close to raising all the needed funds? I would be interested in helping out!
