This Ocean Life, Episode 25 - Leane Horton and Changing the Tides

In Episode 25 we speak with Leane Horton, an amazing woman who has built an incredibly rich life in the ocean. Leane shares her stories of competitive paddleboarding in Molokai 2 Oahu (5x) and as a member of Team Hawai'i in the ISA World Championships (3x). Leane recounts her tales of buying sailboat Valkyrie with her husband and sailing from Mexico to French Polynesia where she makes repeat trips to explore each year. As a co-founder of the Changing Tides Foundation, Leane also provides perspective on giving back to the locations and people we visit on our travels and empowering women to participate fully in their own ocean lives.

One quick clarification: Changing Tides Foundation has not officially done India yet, but it’s in the works. Leane's references one of their partners working in Sri Lanka to link up with an NGO there called “Rice and Carry”. 

Thanks for sharing Leane's ocean life with us. You can see more about her adventures on Instagram. Learn more about the Changing Tides Foundation on their website and YouTube channel.
