As an adult he has sailed thousands of miles as crew or skipper on a variety of boats in all oceans including two voyages to Antarctica.

The Cornell’s Ocean Atlas is the result of an ambitious program he wrote to process the data obtained from the sources listed above. Ivan’s passion for the sea has never left him and he is currently sailing a yacht he built himself.
