After a few days in Hamburg, in the 3rd biggest commercial port of Europe, Pangaea left to London. Here she spent the weekend at St Katherine’s dock, close to the famous Tower Bridge and received a lot of interest from passer-bys, who were curious to hear as much as they could about this amazing aluminum sailboat.
Mike Horn made the most of this visit in London to invite a number of his colleges from the ‘Laureus World Sports Awards Academy' on board. Amongst these were Boris Becker, Edwin Moses, Daley Thomson, Mr Rupert, the chairman of the Richemont Group, and his wife Mrs Gaynor Rupert, the god mother of Pangaea.
Today, Mike Horn and his crew leave London for the extraordinary destination of Greenland. For the first time Pangaea will navigate in the icy waters of the Great North.
Mike’s return to Europe will be scheduled in July when Pangaea returns once again to London and then to Lorient where work will be completed before she sets off on her four year expedition.
