Jul 07, 2024, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Cal Sailing Club, 124 University Ave, Berkeley, CA 94710, USA


About the event

We'll  hear from Megan and Polo, two Cal Sailing Alumni, who are returning to  the Bay Area after a year of low-carbon travel - including a  transatlantic crossing! They're joining us to share tactical tips and  learnings from their sail-hitchhiking travels, where they spent five  months thumbing rides from Montenegro on the Adriatic Sea all the way  across the ocean, through the Caribbean, and up to Florida!

Megan  and Polo are self-styled 'climate explorers' - they lead expeditions  across the world that rely on human and nature-powered travel (including  our favorite form, sailing!) to advocate for climate solutions. We're  meeting them here in Berkeley near the beginning of their Green Journey  Across America - a first-of-its-kind attempt to ride solar-powered  trikes across the entire USA. You can learn more about it at and follow along at

Doors  open at 6:00 PM for networking and drinks, followed by a presentation  at 7:00 PM where Megan and Polo will recount their crossings. They'll  share tips on how to get started with longer overnight passages (even  when you don't have your own sailboat!) as well as share about climate  solutions they've encountered on their trip. Join us as we send them off  in style for The Green Journey Across America, where they'll ride solar  bikes from San Francisco to New York City, riding 4,500 miles across 20  states in the quest to showcase the power of solar across the USA!

Join us for cocktails starting at 6 pm; talk begins at 7 pm.
