In September 2009 I went to Lagos, Portugal to meet the team of the Sea Dragon, a 19m steel hulled sailing vessel built in the UK in 2000. One of twelve identical yachts commissioned by Challenge Business, these boats took part in the toughest yacht race in the world, the BT Global Challenge, sailing around the world against prevailing winds and currents. In 2007 it was acquired by Pangaea Exploration LLC and refit to function as a research vessel with the aim to host and collaborate with different organisations and foundations investigating the pollution levels of our natural environment and the global impact on societies worldwide. In January 2010 I will join them together with Lam Moreels and Marjolijn Dijkman to cross the North Atlantic Gyre, from Bermuda to the Azores.
