Yacht Crew Vlogs: One Woman's Journey to Captain, Lisa Roland

Season 2, Episode 62,  Feb 16, 2021, 07:00 PM

Meet Captain Lisa Roland, a Canadian with a very important challenge coming up and an equally important cause to support. Find out her journey to get to where she is and what is her driving mission now that she has achieved her goal of Captain. 

Lisa and her partner Nini Champion are taking on one of the most difficult challenges of their lives and raising money for children that are aging out of care in Canada.

The Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge

"Rowing to change lives
The challenge of rowing an ocean reflects the struggles faced by youth in foster care. Unable to see the destination, we row on, we batten the hatches to ride out a storm, unsure of how off course it may blow us. Through pain, tears, or trepidation, we continue to paddle, stroke by stroke; a self supported vessel across a vast and unforgiving ocean."

With the funds raised, Team Ocean Grown will set up the Bridges Over Water grant fund within HomeBridge to finance youth aging out of the foster care system to pursue careers in the maritime sector.
Applicants will receive funding for courses and education, benefit from the incredible LegaSea mentorship program for ongoing job counselling support and be eligible for industry job placements.
