The four year expedition on board the boat of the same name is more than a standard adventure for the visionary – it is his personal mission. Following his various expeditions over the years and over the globe, Mike Horn wanted to pass on his knowledge and experience to future generations. As an ambassador for our planet, the native South African is calling for more respect for our earth and for active conservation of the environment. On his globe spanning sailing expedition, he and his team initiated environmental and social projects both on sea and land. They focussed on environmental issues such as the melting of the ice caps at the poles, water pollution, creating awareness about the planet and develop solutions in order to preserve it for future generations.
