OAR Northwest launches the CWF Salish Sea Expedition, a circumnavigation of Vancouver Island, aboard the world’s most technologically advanced ocean rowboat. Help get the expedition underway and join the ocean rowboat as it crosses Lake Union to the Ballard locks.  Using pioneering satellite communications to deliver adventurous and educational content from the rowboat while underway, OAR Northwest connects families, students and classrooms to the extraordinary craft.
