Marinas like this one at Sovereign Harbour in Eastbourne, Sussex, UK, are unlikely to be invaded by sargassum, due to the latitude, and relatively cool waters of the English Channel, that do not suit Sargassum Natans or Fluitans. Though, as we accelerate past the 1.5 degree target set in Paris in 2015, hurtling toward the newly predicted 2.4 degree expectation, all that may change. Terry and Nelson are climate change warriors, both volunteers working in their free time for the Cleaner Ocean Foundation. Terry is a fitness coach. Nelson is a boat fabricator and conceptual engineer.








Terry Valeriano is a devoted husband, father of three and the health & safety officer, presently studying for this role in between running his own gym and personal training service from Eastbourne. Terry is also our security officer and keeps himself fit with mixed martial arts, cycling, etc.


In 2020, Terry modeled for the fictional character John Storm, in the ocean adventure series, including: Cleopatra The Mummy, Kulo Luna, and Treasure Island. Big thanks to the former bricklayer and building instructor for his continued support.





Beachy Head lighthouse, now redundant



WE'VE SEEN THE LIGHT - Terry had seen the lighthouse in 2016. Nice 'T' shirt. In 2020, Terry continues with his volunteering for the Cleaner Ocean Foundation, also helping people in the Eastbourne area to get fitter as a personal trainer from 2020.







Terry became involved at a very early stage of the project helping with the construction of a water test tank, robot lab and physically building many of the eroded walls to bring them back to full use.


In 2016 Avaaz offered to help raise funds to take the concept further and that led to a Horizon 2020 application - and is likely to lead to other drives to raise additional funds.


Currently the project is negotiating for a launch site, with agents instructed to pursue recently identified venues.





Vikeen gym at Eastbourne in sussex



PERSONAL TRAINING - Terry is now managing his own gym in Eastbourne, working with other personal trainers.








HEALTHIER LIVING - Eating well and keeping fit is one way to stay on top of the stresses of modern living. Terry is keen to see more Pescatarian, Vegetarian and Vegan dieting, as one way for meat eaters to reduce greenhouse gases. Even a couple of meat free days a week, will make a tremendous difference worldwide, as our population grows. Vikeen™ is operated from a gym in Eastbourne, with (ocean elder) Terry Valeriano as the lead personal trainer. This application was filed in December 2021 by fellow ocean elder, Nelson Kay, an experienced IP specialist. A Certificate of Registration was granted in April 2022. Nelson is also a business mentor, a free service to organizations looking to reduce their carbon footprint, who may also help other organizations adopt more efficient practices.







DC50 - A tribute to Donald Campbell on the 50th anniversary of his world land speed double (land and water speed records), the EcoStar DC50 is seen here in an early stage of construction with the team that helped to build her in 2014, including Christina Dusart, Nelson Kay, Terry Valeriano and Chris Close. The young man in the front is Ryan Dusart, a budding roboteer who is now learning how to program using Arduino computers.







JAMIE HUGHES - Seen here on the left, the youngest member of the SeaVax team in 2015 at Innovate UK, Old Billingsgate, London. Jamie extols the virtues of this splendid proof of concept model, explaining the features to visitors to the event.





Success is the product of international research collaboration and  great project management















WHAT FUTURE OUR OCEANS? - The versatility of SeaVax™ is enhanced using a modular approach that helps us to develop these ocean going machines into an economic tool for the long-term prosperity of all fishing nations in the drive for a truly sustainable, circular economy.
