The S/V Purple Haze crew was sailing in St. Maarten this spring and decided to adopt a whale in honor of their crew mate and his documentary “Unrivaled,” and their Alma Mater.

They are the official patrons of whale No. CRC-16712, also known as Sewanee Unrivaled. The adoption is through the Whales of Guerrero and Happy Whale. Sewanee Unrivaled is currently somewhere in the Pacific Ocean.
