The CEO of Polish shipyard Sunreef Yachts, Francis Lapp, has joined renowned explorer and Sunreef ambassador Mike Horn for the “What’s Left” expedition leg in Greenland, taking place on board the 32-metre  sailing yacht Pangaea.

The  expedition, supported by the shipyard, is exploring remote locations onboard the refitted sailing yacht.  Pangaea is providing a mobile platform for research, adventure and experiences with a mission to focus on raising awareness of climate change and evaluating global environmental changes.

The South African-born adventurer and keynote speaker at the 2023 Explorer Yachts Summit, Mike Horn, explained: “Guiding my sailing vessel Pangaea, I return to iconic and wild locations to witness changes, fulfil more desires on my adventurer’s bucket list, and inspire people to act on their passions. I prioritise adventure and environment at each destination, sharing stories and footage from my journey.”

The refit of Pangaea, christened after the ancient supercontinent, was completed by Sunreef Yachts in a bid to prepare the yacht and enhance its comfort ahead of the forthcoming global expedition.
