A stream of visitors stopped by to visit hull no. 4 of the Exploration 45, sister ship to Jimmy Cornell’s new Aventura. A comfortable corner had been set aside for Jimmy to receive a stream of visitors, most of whom had been following his regular reports from Aventura’s maiden voyage to the Arctic.

Thanks to a close and fruitful collaboration with this august body, all Cornell Sailing Events are run under the auspices of UNESCO-IOC, with a range of research projects being undertaken by participants in the various Odysseys. The stunning photo in the background was taken shortly after the deployment of a drifter buoy in the Greenland Current.
