COP26 Climate Conference

We are proud and honored to get the opportunity to advocate for climate action as part of the delegation of the Marshall Islands at COP26 climate conference in Glasgow. We had two very nice events where we presented the achievements of Waan Aelõñ in Majel (Canoes of the Marshall Islands) in gaining climate change resilience by reviving the traditional outrigger canoe.

A recorded video of our session is here available on demand (requires free registration).

News from the Marshall Islands

The Marshall Island Journal (local newspaper of the Marshall Islands) has published a nice article about the successful collaboration between Waan Aelon in Majel (WAM), Proasis and the Low Carbon Sea Transport Project. WAM has just launched a slightly smaller version of our Proasis with sustainable fishing in mind. Kommol tata for the great work!

Proasis at Kiel Climate Week

Proasis will be part of the first Climate Week hosted by the City of Kiel. We will be present with our canoe at the waterfront doing some panel discussions and taking people out for a sail.

Everybody is very welcome to join us for the talking part on land but the space on our boat is limited. Please visit the website of the organizers and make a reservation to catch a ride on proasis.

Performance Measurement

Henrik hast developed a data logger to collect performance data for polar plots for the Marshall Islands project on low carbon sea transport. The loggers collects samples of GPS speed, heading and wind speed and direction simultaneously. The data is collected and will be processed soon!

It is planned to test the device on traditional canoes too.

Sailing with Fjordproa aka. Elliot

We’ve sailed Proasis deep into the Flensburg fjord to meet Lars from fjordproa. Lars recently over Klaus Deppermanns Gilbertese proa “Elliot” (see his old video from the 1990’s) since he retired from sailing. It’s great to finally see Elliot on the water and once again a special occasion to sail together with another canoe!
