A real housewife of New Jersey Margo Pellegrino Outrigger Journey from Seattle to San Diego

Monday, September 6th, 2010

A real housewife of New Jersey 43-year old Medford Lakes mother of two, Margo Pellegrino. Margo is spending most of the summer away from her husband Carl, 5-year old daughter Julia and 8-year old son Billy paddling a fast light outrigger canoe down the Pacific Coast from Seattle to San Diego (and should be here by Sept. 12). She’s doing this to raise awareness of our oceans at risk and solutions to environmental threats that each of us can be a part of. Plus it gives her rad abs and rock-hard guns.

FYI to any paddlers that want check it out and offer support. I’ll be hosting Margo and her support crew in Dana Point on Tuesday and will post up the arrival/departure times if anyone wants to join her.
Margo’s schedule is:

9/5 – Redondo Beach, LA
9/6 – Long Beach
9/7 – Dana Point
9/8 – Oceanside
9/9 – Mission Bay
9/10 – media day at San Diego Harbor
9/11 – day off
9/12 – finish at Ocean Beach, San Diego – Paddle For Clean Water Event

Margo Pellegrino does what many of us who care about the environment do. She constantly picks up trash in her own community and participates in beach cleanups several times a year. She considers sustainability and environmental impacts of every consumer decision she makes. She instills environmental stewardship in her children and anyone else who listens to her speak – which is more than just a few.

About two months a year, this 43-year-old mother of two takes off and paddles part of America’s coastline, in what has become her personal ocean conservation campaign. She paddles into communities to call attention to the about the threats facing our ocean and what we need to do to heal it. She paddled her outrigger canoe over 2,000 miles from Miami to Camden, ME in the summer of 2007. She followed that trip with a “short” 500 mile trip from New Jersey’s Long Beach Island to Washington D.C in 2008 and a 1,500 mile trip from Florida’s Atlantic coast around the Gulf of Mexico into New Orleans in 2009.

This summer she is paddling the Pacific coast – from Seattle all the way down to San Diego. After braving the exposed and rough seas of Washington and Oregon through most of July, and entered northern California in early August. She paddled down through the heart of Big Sur and around Pt. Conception will land on the weekend of Sept 11-12 in San Diego Harbor & then participate in the Surfrider SD Paddle for Clean Water event at Ocean Beach on Sunday, Sept 12.

It hasn’t been easy and she’s already had her share of big swells, rough beach landings, and unplanned layovers. Nonetheless she’s having a great time and her blog is full of stories about the kindness of strangers and the beauty of the places she’s travelling through. Margo’s journey is tracked online at where broadcasts her current location as she paddles, and post daily blogs featuring where she shares the experiences of her journey along with pictures and video clips.

Margo’s working with the Blue Frontier Campaign, an organization that provides tools to raise awareness of the solution-oriented marine conservation community. She’s stopping in communities along the way, speaking about the ocean environment and meeting with people who share her passion for the sea.

Her journey from the beginning – Seattle, WA on July 3rd – is maintained on her Google Map page, although her current whereabouts can be tracked in real time through her satellite beacon. She also travels with a one-woman land support crew, June Barnard, who is Margo point person on land. She carries all the equipment, supplies, communication and other gear necessary for the pair to be self-sufficient during their journey southward. That is, everything except real estate.

As Margo is paddling her way southward, she is looking for the following support locally:

Events to be hosted by marine conservation organizations, which are intended to help generate media attention for Margo’s message of ocean conservation, as well as that the host organization. (Sample press release templates & event hosting FAQ document is attached);

Overnight hosting for Margo and June, which can be a bed, a couch or even a backyard where they pitch a tent. The status of locations where they need hosting support is captured in the Google Map

Any boats which may be interested is heading out to help escort Margo for any stretches she’s paddling;

Any local knowledge on Margo’s selected landing sites, including alternatives.

Any networking with others down the coast, who may be able to provide any of the support listed above.

Margo, an activist and mother of two from New Jersey, was committed to carrying out this paddling campaign in the name of the ocean, and launched this journey and mission despite the lack of sufficient funding raised prior to the paddle. In addition to the in-kind support identified above, she is also in need of financial support for the paddle. Please support her Pacific Coast paddle by donating securely on her website.

Margo sums up the drive behind her paddling journey as her “way to call attention to the need for healthy oceans.” Her philosophy is guided by being a mother of two and she embraces the importance of being a role model as well as an environmental steward. She states that “While not every thing we do, every decision we make or action we take carries the weight of the world upon it, it does carry a lot more that most people think it does. Every one of us is also a living example for every one else around us – and none more so than the children around us.” A great message we can all agree with.

UPDATE: 9/6/2010

Margo is rounding PV right now and will arrive in Long Beach this afternoon. Tomorrow (Tuesday) she leaves Long Beach between 7am and 8am to Dana Point with an expected arrival between 2 and 4 depending on conditions. Her Current Location tracker at will give you a more accurate idea of her arrival times should you want to paddle out and say hello. I know this is OC related but it’s a historic paddle for a good cause and we all play in the same pool. Looks like a couple guys on paddleboards paddled with her on her arrival in Ventura.
