Ed Bear helps Ed Wade Martin share his adventures at Cardinal Newman School UK

Hi all

As you know I travelled to the Atlantic Ocean last year as part of the crew on the Moondancer as we sailed south along the eastern seaboard of the Atlantic Ocean. We saw some amazing wildlife and I experienced all sorts of sea and weather conditions and learned first hand where wind comes from, what makes waves, why sea mist forms and much more. You can see this and some of the amazing wildlife we encountered in my earlier blog entries Sept to December 2015.You can also see more at

I arrived back in the UK end of January in time to take part in the Brighton Science festival in February.

Anyway, I went along with Ed Wade Martins, Skipper of the Moondancer, to help him deliver his Key note speech for the Brighton & Hove Environmental Education Project schools conference at Cardinal Newman school. We talked about the sailing trip and about the issues of plastics in the oceans and the whole thing went down really well.

Here is a short video me made at the school. We have lots of great footage of the voyage which we are working on and will have more great stuff to show soon.

In January I will be returning to the Atlantic Ocean with the Moondancer and the rest of the crew for more adventures.
