The stay in Southampton was great. Mike fell under the charm of the Brits and quite a bit of necessary work was undertaken on the boat. But it was time to move on…
Now Mike and his team are heading to New York, the last and final stop-over prior to the boat's descent to Ushuaia, on the southern point of Argentina, and the beginning of 'Pangaea', Mike Horn's four year environmental expedition around the world.
Since leaving England, Pangaea encountered fairly rough conditions at first, and was forced to take a northerly direction. Now she is currently advancing on sail at a speed of 10.9 knots and is situated 630 nautical miles from New York. A tropical storm is expected to come in later today, the 'swing-off' from Hurricane Gustav but the boat and her team shouldn't have any major problems and should arrive safety in Lower Manhattan on the evening of the 2nd of September.
Mike is looking forward to being once again on American territory and divulging his project and passion to the American people.
