A woman with Romanian origins and her husband will help environmental activist Greta Thunberg to cross the Atlantic from US to Europe by their non-polluting sailboat.
“So happy to say I’ll hopefully make it to COP25 in Madrid. I’ve been offered a ride from Virginia on the 48ft catamaran La Vagabonde. Australians
@Sailing_LaVaga ,Elayna Carausu & @_NikkiHenderson from England will take me across the Atlantic. We sail for Europe tomorrow morning!“, said Greta on Twitter.
26-year-old Elayna Cărăușu, born in Australia to a Romanian father and an Austrian mother, and her Australian husband are already famous on social media for their initiatives to sail the world’s oceans by their sailboat. They travel by their catamaran La Vagabonde and post photos and videos on their You Tube channel.
Greta was looking for a boat to take her from U.S. to Madrid, to attend a summit on climate change next month, without using polluting transportation means. The Swedish young activist reached America at the end of August on board of a racing yacht owned by one of the members of the Monaco royal family, after she refused the flights, arguing she is against the aircraft’s CO2 emissions.
The trip by yacht lasted 14 days.
