Pangaea in Ibiza Pangaea in Ibiza

Pangaea arrives in Ibiza

After a pleasant journey from Gibraltar with good winds and sunny weather, Mike and his crew sail Pangaea to the southern tip of the beautiful island of Ibiza.

Pangaea drops anchor amongst many other boats and sun seekers there for their summer holidays.

Pangaea will be leaving again as soon as Mike and his crew have had a good rest and meal.

After the traverse of the Atlantic Ocean with what seemed to be constant head-on winds and big swells, Mike and crew sail Pangaea into the med.

Today the skies opened up and the team were welcomed with warm weather and sun as they attached Pangaea to her mooring in the port of Gibraltar.

At long last, with the Atlantic behind them, the team can enjoy a much deserved rest before sailing to their next European destination.

After a short stop-over in Lanzarote Island Mike Horn and crew hoist Pangaea’s sails once again and sail past Isla De Alegranza towards their final destination. Sailing into 22 knots of head-on NE winds has dramatically¬†reduced¬†Pangaea’s speed. They are now sailing 7 knots and have still another 547nm until Gibraltar.

Strong winds hinder Pangaea’s traverse from Cape Verde to the Canary Islands.

‘The trip was slow and unpleasant due to head-on winds and big swells’, say Mike. The crew tried to enter into a port last night to get some much needed rest but unfortunately ¬†the winds baffled them once again. They were forced to retreat and continue their journey to Tenerife.

Today the winds have calmed down and the fishing lines are out.

Soon they will arrive in Tenerife and get the must deserved rest that they are in need of.

Mike is in a constant state of travel and adventure , so keep up to date on all his expeditions !
