Terence Bell, Pioneer Around Kaua’i, Looking For Swim Buddies
Terence Bell, an Australian aquapreneur who is starting a 14-day stage swim on July 1st to circumnavigate the 160 km around the Hawaiian island of Kaua’i next month is looking for swim buddies. “We’ll launch from Nawiliwili and go south, southwest. I’d like people to come out and meet me. I’ll swim in the morning and then take a break, swim in the afternoons and then we’ll pull into a shelter or harbor in the evenings.”
“The ocean has taught me to be humble and have a simple awareness that everything in life is interconnected,” says Bell who created The Ocean Lover, an organization that is dedicated to reconnecting people with the underwater world through sharing personal stories.
His aim is to raise awareness for Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii, a grassroots local non-profit making an impact with ocean awareness and beach cleanups. “We’re proud to support Terence as an ambassador of #zerowaste and an ocean lover who is passionate about increasing awareness how plastic impacts our marine ecosystem,“ said Rafael Bergstrom, Executive Director, Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii.
The stage swim around the coastline will tracked by GPS on Strava with updates regularly posted on Instagram @onlywildones. Bell explains, “I will swim up to 13 km over 5 hours per day. I will be supported by a local team led by an experienced captain on a fully equipped sailing boat.”
