G-Cubes production on uninhabited island full of garbage. Panama – San Blas Islands

On our trip to Panama we stopped in San Blas and we were able to clean an uninhabited island that was totally full of garbage on the coast. The current has brought this garbage that has not been produced here. It is a very serious problem and additionally, the community that lives in the surrounding islands does not have the infrastructure to recycle. The main problem that the community finds is the lack of drinking water and the possibility of doing something with solid waste and residues.

 

Garbage Clean Action in Santa Marta, Colombia

The collect and clean action in Santa Marta was carried out in the bay of the city a few meters from the Marina of Santa Marta, where the World ARC Rally was hosted.. With the support of Caribbean Team, a restaurant that collaborated with the location of the presses; We could with the unconditional support of Samarios sí Podemos make a recollection of 7 bags of approximately 60 liters of volume. At the end, a lot of this garbage was put in the place where it should be: garbage container. And another part was used to create Cubes with the written coordinates of the city Santa Marta.

 

Our cleanup day of Saturday, February 13 was extensively reviewed by the city newspaper. We appreciate the coverage and interest in our support of the activity with Harald Reichenbach of G-Cubes.

 

And finally the cubes!

Wednesday 24.05.17

On Wednesday we were able to produce the plaques on which the coordinates are depicted. Now we just had to incorporate the plaques into the Cube by placing the plaques on the surface and hardening with a second cast. Now the work was done and we could let the cube dry.

G-Cubes takes the O’Deline on Board

The Association President -Harald Reichenbach- and initiator of G-Cubes succeeded in a short time to find a replacement ship for the project, the O’Deline. The sailing ship is financed privately and is available to the G-Cubes association from now on and on special conditions for its project.

The yacht is a Benneteau 473 Oceanis Commodore Performance with vintage 2005. The former owner equipped the ship to an Atlantic crossing, which he had never crossed. The ship therefore has some special equipment:

 

Additional fresh water tank

Additional diesel tank

Desalination plant

Power Unit (220 V, diesel)

Fix installed solar panels

Enhanced Performance Rigg

Two foresails

Four electric winches

Radar System

Until the start of the circumnavigation, O’Deline is based in the south of France near Marseille in Port Napoléon. Despite the best condition, the ship is specially prepared for the round the world.

 

Welcome on Board!
