Horn’s PAM 92 ArktosIn 2006, he became the first man to make it to the North Pole in the winter. He did so in permanent darkness, without the use of a dog sled, or certainly anything motorized. More people have been to the moon than been where Horn has gone.
Two weeks ago, Panerai invited Sean Sullivan and myself aboard what is very likely the coolest boat on planet earth to spend the day with who is very likely the most interesting man on planet earth. Hyperbole aside, the day I spent aboard the Pangaea with explorer, environmentalist and all around great guy, Mike Horn, will not soon be forgotten. The 109 foot all-aluminum Pangaea was built in the slums of Sao Paolo. It is constructed to go anywhere on earth, literally. Everything is completely manual, this isn’t a motor yacht, it’s a proper sail boat. Horn and his two teammates man the entire boat by themselves.
