Okeanos Marshall Islands sailed to Ailuk Atoll and received a very warm welcoming from the community. The crew met master canoe builder Rain Senight, who possess 4 Marshall Islands National Canoe Race Cup Title (the most in RMI History) exchanged traditional sailing knowledge. On board was Universität Potsdam researcher Kira Virginia Vinke studying the impacts of climate change on migration in the RMI. The crew assisted with a demonstration of the University of the South Pacific EU GCCA and GEF-SGP's Solar Water Desalination system to refresh the training and skills obtained by the locals from the project. These solar water harvesting units are producing 3-4 gallons of fresh water from 8-12 gallons of lagoon salt water - which are very cost-effective for household use, easily fabricated and can be utilized to provide potable distilled drinking water during droughts for families in the drought-prone communities in the Northern Islands such as Ailuk Atoll.

On this journey, OMI also assisted well known German Researcher Kira Virginia Vinke who is working on the relationship between the impacts of climate change and migration in the RMI.

Lastly, OMI reiterated a demonstration of the USP EU GCCA's and GEF-SGP's Solar Water Desalination system to refresh the training and skills obtained by the locals from the project.
