The world may not have returned to “normal” yet. In fact, things may never go back to the way “normal” was before the global pandemic changed almost every aspect of our lives. And while the sheer human toll we’ve all experienced thanks to Covid19 has been profound, I’m also grateful to be reminded how special life, and the planet, and specifically, the world’s oceans are every time I’m out on the water—from the smallest rowboats to the largest superyachts—as part of my job.
