Welcome to the Pacific Solo Store
Pacific Solo is a 2-3 month expedition that will take Lowell Sheppard on board SV Wahine from Tokyo, Japan to Vancouver, Canada via Nemo North, the remotest point of the North Pacific. The expedition will also skirt the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, bringing attention to the plight of our oceans.
Lowell and SV Wahine are currently training and upgrading equipment, and intend to leave Tokyo Bay in the spring of 2021 and arrive in Vancouver in the summer.
Your purchase from this store will help support the expedition and the Great Pacific Learning Project, which links Lowell and Wahine with classrooms.
