Sailing for healthier seas

Acting as a larger-than-life emissary for the threatened health of Lake Erie, The Earth Voyager-one of the fastest sailboats on the Great Lakes-sails into port at Cleveland's North Coast Harbor tomorrow.

The 60-feet-long and nearly 100-foot-tall racing boat, which can reach speeds of 40 mph, is touring 13 cities in the Great Lakes Basin to raise awareness for the Healing Our Waters (HOW) Great Lakes Coalition. See the boat up close and get information about the Great Lakes Regional Collaboration Strategy-a $20 billion, five-year plan to restore the Great Lakes endorsed by citizens, industry, mayors, governors and the region's congressional delegation.

U.S. Senator George Voinovich will speak at a breakfast reception and press conference on Friday to raise awareness about Great Lakes restoration and protection.
