SAILOR, ARTIST, CO-FOUNDER OF EXXPEDITION
Born in Swansea and raised in Penarth, Emily Penn is an international advocate for clean oceans, having organised the largest ever community-led clean-up from a tiny Tongan island, trawled for micro-plastics through the Arctic Northwest Passage, and circled the planet on the record-breaking biofuelled boat Earthrace, She splits her time between running eXXpedition – a series of all female voyages which focus on the relationship between plastics and toxics and female health – and working on solving the ocean plastics issue with Parley for the Oceans and other corporate clients. She became the youngest and only female recipient of both the Yachtmaster of the Year and the Seamaster of the Year awards.
